FORDS — In an attempt to understand the levels of government and how much we are affected by them in our daily lives, seventh grade students at Our Lady of Peace School in Fords were sent on scavenger hunts. The objective was to take an empty gift bag and find 10 items at home that are connected to or influenced by one of the four levels of government. For example a stuffed Mickey Mouse would be an example of the national level because of trademark laws and state because of sales tax.
The pictures below show students preparing to explain and defend their choices. Students were surprised and how often they were in contact with one or more levels everyday. (Photos courtesy of Our Lady of Peace School)
