Integrate literacy into your social studies lessons by reading and responding to passages about the 3 branches of the United States government. Included are short passages with comprehension questions about the Executive, Judicial, and Legislative branches of government. Comprehension questions are multiple choice, short answer, and true/false. The questions challenge students to process what they've read to answer questions and to find answers within a piece of text. The comprehension passages could easily be completed independently, in small groups, or as a whole group. They also make an excellent review tool and homework assignment.
Primary roles of each branch- Executive, Judicial, and Legislative
President of the United States

Each passage and question sheet was created in black and white so that the entire file is printer-friendly.
