Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To know how Congress is organized and how it carries out its legislative duties.

TIME:
1 class period

Students begin this lesson by reading several statements about Congress, which are arranged into the following sections:

• How Congress Is Organized
• When Congress Meets
• Congress's Power to Make Laws
• Other Duties of Congress
• Members of Congress at Work

As they read through this information, I have the kids underline or highlight key words, names, terms, and ideas.

Following the reading, the class is divided into two teams to compete against each other in a fun JEOPARDY game. Category titles are TERMS, SENATE, THE HOUSE, PEOPLE, and ODDS AND ENDS. Questions asked during the game are based on facts given in the background information.

SPECIAL NOTE:
JEOPARDY games have always been very popular among my students, and help to make social studies their favorite class!
