Teacher: Heather Cagle
Grade: 7
Subject: Civics and Geography
Concept: Authority


Authority means the right to use power over something or someone. For example, our poster shows parents, presidents, senators, doctors, and teachers that can have authority over us. But there are also things like laws and rules from the Bible that have authority over people. On the other hand, this doesn’t mean that just because you are young and small that you have to listen to everyone that is bigger or older than you. You should only obey authority that looks out for your best interests.
