In order to more efficiently conduct the business of the United States, Congress divides its workload up among a variety of committees and subcommittees. As a result of this however, both the Senate and House of Representatives are home to a bewildering array of legislative sub-bodies, each with its own purpose and agenda.

This 'match-em' and short answer worksheet is designed to help students navigate the complicated world of congressional committees. Using 'match-ems' and short answer questions, it will teach them to understand the day-to-day operations of Congress, to differentiate between Joint committees and Conference Committees, and to appreciate the functions of bodies such as the General Accounting Office.

Perfect as an in-class activity, a homework assignment or as a review sheet!
