What is federalism, and why should we care? Where does federal power end and state power begin? And, perhaps most importantly, what role does money play in this whole process?!

This Social Studies and Government worksheet is designed to provide students with a solid background understanding of how power is distributed between the US's state and federal governments.

Using identification / definition questions, this worksheet covers material such as 'The Elastic Clause,' expressed vs. reserved powers, the Supremacy Clause and more.

Analyze in detail how a complex primary source is structured, including how key sentences, paragraphs, and larger portions of the text contribute to the whole.
