Interested in injecting a little humor into the current political season? Watch Soup to Nuts, a filmstrip the Center released in 1977 to promote student inquiry and discussion of the need for authority, limited government, elections, and the role and responsibilities of the people and the people they elect to serve in their behalf. Although dated, we think it is pretty relevant.

Soup to Nuts was originally released in 1977 and was used in classrooms to teach the fundamentals of the American democratic system.

Soup to Nuts was originally released in 1977 and was used in classrooms to teach the fundamentals of the American representative government.

Soup to Nuts is a series of four filmstrips for high school students that illustrated concepts basic to an understanding of representative government. The videos were produced as part of the Authority series (now the Foundations of Democracy series) for the Law in a Free Society curriculum published by the Center for Civic Education. You can view the entire fifteen minute video or each of the four chapters separately.

If you are interested, give it a try with your students and let us know how it works.
