Product Description
Congress remains one of the least trusted institutions in the United States - some surveys even rank them behind used car salesmen in terms of reliability.

This two-part American Government worksheet discusses some of Congress's least popular habits: Pork Barrel Spending, legislative gridlock and, of course, lobbyists. Short answer ID questions will test students' understand of congressional activity and the efforts of lobbyists, and the Internet research activity will help them discover Washington's leading recipients of special interest money - including tobacco, pharmaceuticals and both sides of the firearms debate.

Perfect as an in-class activity an conversation starter, or as a homework assignment!
