Product Description
Who does what in our government?

Students play to achieve one of six different "goal sets" by applying what they've learned about how the U.S. Constitution structures the 3 branches. The dealer decides the goal of each round, like matching 3 "checks" from one branch, and then deals the cards. Students draw and discard until meeting the goal of the round- then they race to "go out".

This activity supports the following Florida 7th Grade Civics Benchmarks:

SS.7.C.3.3 Illustrate the structure and function of the 3 branches established in the U.S. Constitution.

SS.7.C.3.8 Analyze the structure, functions and processes of the 3 branches.
