This product is meant to help students understand the system of Checks and Balances.
Students take bullet-point notes from a power point on a graphic organizer. Using their notes, they then read tongue-in-cheek scenarios and determine which branch does the checking in each scenario. The scenario sheet asks students to create their own Checks and Balances scenarios while working with a partner. It is a fun way to check for understanding in what can be a difficult idea to deliver to our kids.
