I really enjoyed using this with my class. The kids learned a lot about the government with the various activities. I specifically used Ben's Guide website with the materials. It was great for kids who are high to complete independently and for the struggles, it was accessible and easy to follow with peer/teacher support. I highly recommend it and will use it many times.

Oh, gosh, I didn't get to the last page with your suggested resources. My apology! Thank you.

No problem! I hope that helps out!
Thank you so much for your purchase!

On  November 7, 2013,  Buyer asked:
I bought the pack and I am wondering if you have a book you use to go with it? Where are you pulling your info. from? I was hoping to find some resources that helped with this as my district text is outdated. Thanks!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 8, 2013Chrissy Beltran answered:
Most of the information comes from the sites that I mentioned in the back of the pack, such as Ben's Guide to Government (I recommend this one). However, you could use books such as So You Wanna Be President? or informational texts. If you search on Amazon for "government books for kids" there are many suggested titles for information. One is "Branches of Government (Government in Action)" by John Hamilton. I hope you find some resources to use!
n/a
On  May 2, 2013,  Buyer asked:
I bought this and LOVE it. I have one question - on the "Which Branch is it?" page, what is the answer for #4 The ____branch provides for safety?
Thanks
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  June 12, 2013Chrissy Beltran answered:
Thanks! I would consider that the Executive Branch provides for safety because they are responsible for homeland security and the FDA, etc.
On  March 11, 2013Aleib (TpT Seller) asked:
Could this be used with a substitute teacher? Is it student-oriented?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 16, 2013Chrissy Beltran answered:
Some components could be used with a sub as long as there is a source of information that students are able to read and understand, such as a social studies textbook or a video about government. Then they could complete the activities with a sub.
n/a
On  November 1, 2012,  Buyer asked:
how do you create the foldable?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 1, 2012Chrissy Beltran answered:
You print out the foldable (page 7) and the cards to sort (page 8) You fold page 7 in half across the horizontal line. Then you cut the lines (only on the front of the foldable; don't cut through both flaps) in-between executive, legislative, and judicial. You cut the cards on page 8 out and sort them into the three branches. You glue them under the appropriate flap. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
