This resource includes a 26-slide power point lecture (complete with graphics, transitions, and organized information), student cloze notes to fill-in as you teach, and an extension activity in which students will categorize various types of government powers. This lesson is perfect for any U.S. Government or AP® Government class and covers important unit themes, from the powers of the federal vs state governments to important constitutional clauses to fiscal federalism/grants, and more! I have included editable student fill-in-the-blank cloze notes to correspond with the power point slides if you like to use that format in your classes. The activity can be used either before or after covering the notes. The power point is mostly editable (with the exception of some font titles and clip art that have been secured), so you can adjust it to fit your curriculum. I typically cover the notes over the course of two days, so I don't overwhelm the students with information.
Want to engage your students and further expand on your federalism unit, check out my Multi-Day Federalism Research Assignment
