Why do we need a Government

Middle schoolers explore some of the ideas of major importance to the Founders, why we need a government, and how the Founders believed governments should be created and what they should do. They think of a right that all people should have and explain how they think rights likes the one they chose could be protected. Finally, students become a philosopher and work together to come up with an argument of a classroom and teacher with no rights, compared to John Locke.
