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".
