I often get questions about where to find maps on various topics. This week a colleague, who teaches elementary students-third grade, asked about incorporating maps of world government types with their study of democracy and the three branches of US government while comparing it to Ancient Greece.
Here's what I found:
A nice lesson plan (http://greece.teachingmatters.org/lessons/1-2 ) with a great role playing activity...very practical.
A types of government worksheet: http://www.cvhs.cv.k12.ca.us/STAFF/kcassidy/World0708/RiseDemocracy/Typesofgovtchart.htm (Also great for AP Human Geography or Government class)
And an interactive map: http://chartsbin.com/view/6kx (This site is full of great data! The types of government is just one data set.)
