As the years progress in my teaching career (I am now in my ninth year), I truly feel I have reached somewhat of a mastery/perfection when it comes to teaching certain subjects/concepts. With this being said, while many teachers may feel that that teaching the concept of checks and balances is somewhat a basic thing to teach, I know from experience that it must be done in a precise manner in order to truly have students both understand the key ideas of our governmental system as well as gain the basic tools so that can then build upon this knowledge in their future learnings of both political science and the constitution.
With this being said, what I have provided is a concise and time tested (over many years in my classroom) checks and balances graphic organizer that can be utilized for multiple grade levels. As a bonus, I have also included an answer sheet so that you, as the teacher, do not have to have the extra burden of adding extra time to your lesson planning.
As with all of my curriculum products, I personally stand by them as I know they work because I use them in my own classroom. Each product that I post to Teacher Pay Teachers is an actual curriculum document from my own classroom both prepared and successfully used by me. I am both a reputable seller as well a seller with consistently high ratings. Please buy my products in confidence that you know you buying a curriculum tool that will not only help you in your classroom today but also be available for use for years to come. Thank you for visiting my store today and I wish you good luck in the school year!
