|Government meeting in Brazil|
"Brazilian cabinet meeting"
7th Grade Humanities, SP
As you can see in the image up top, my class brainstormed many more ideas such as promoting cultural diversity, keeping order and peace, and controlling military, though the ones I just talked about are the characteristics that stood out to me the most.
In the Giver, does the government fulfil the requirements of a government?
Before Carnaval break, my 7th grade Humanities class finished reading the inspiring, touching book: The Giver. This was written by Lois Lowry.
Before we get into it, I'll give you some background knowledge on the way of being in the Giver. The world in which characters form this book live in is a dystopian time. They don't have basic things in life such as colours, weather, or curiosity. Their government has shut off all these things. Only one person in the community, the Receiver, can have knowledge on the past, so that in times of need, he can give knowledge on these things. For example, a 'family unit' can only have two children: a boy and a girl, though some citizens wanted bigger families. They went to the community Elders [government] to ask if they could, and the Elders went to the Receiver, who said it'd be best not to have bigger families as that could risk lack of food and hunger. I hope that helped you [the reader], understand some basic things about their government.

Holding hands: forbidden. This is in the movie
As was said before, there are many more characteristics of a government, though these to me, are the most important for the Giver.
