Use this interactive smartboard lesson to introduce your kiddos to the 3 branches of the U.S. Government: Legislative, Executive, and Judicial.
(Special Note: If you do not have smartnotebook, you can still use this file IF you download smartnotebook's FREE interactive viewer.
Each page introduces the branch and requires some form of interaction from the students. Ex. Click to reveal tool, erase to reveal, etc
Students are taught the job of each branch and the members of each branch. They are taught the qualifications of the president, how a bill becomes a law, and how the branches are kept in check by checks and balances. This is a simple introduction made for my third grade class. It does NOT go into extreme detail required for the upper grade levels.
