PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These interactive notebook graphic organizers will help students organize information about the study of the U.S. legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government!

Interactive notebooks are an effective tool in the classroom. Not only can they assist students in keeping their work organized, but they are also an easy-to-access resource for reference throughout the year.

The Branches of Government Interactive Notebook Bundle is intended as a resource for late-elementary and middle school ages.
