Whether you are searching for that Constitution Day lesson or beginning a unit on the Constitution, this assignment is ideal!
Students will develop a rudimentary knowledge of the three branches of government (including which Article pertains to which branch), the powers of each branch, the relationship between the federal government and the states, and certain amendments.
Students can work either individually or with partners. The 2-day estimate includes time needed to review and discuss.
This is an EXCELLENT foundation for material relating to the Constitution, to which both students and instructor can refer year-round.
The assignment uses a Calibri font and is saved under a Word 97-2003 format. This will allow for whatever changes in formatting or reference pages might be needed.
After teaching government and economics at the high school level for two years, it was definitely eye-opening to be placed in front of middle school students. But, ten years later, I am having a blast teaching US History and World History!
