Students will actively engage in 4 meaningful, hands-on activities to help further strengthen their understanding of the roles, characteristics & responsibilities of our 3 Branches of Government! The interaction of the branches will be brought to life in a 24 part, whole class reader’s theater. Get students up and moving around the room with a whole class 4 corners game. Involve technology with a QR code game that is perfect for stations or small group review. To gauge students’ learning, use the provided formative, cut & paste assessment. A wonderful complement to any study of US government in the intermediate grades!
