government unit, plant growth and development, coordinate grids

Miss Clark, our student teacher, taught a unit on government. The students had to campaign for mayor of our classroom, register to vote, and vote for the class mayor. After elections, the class mayor(s) ran a town meeting to solve a town problem.
