These task cards are a great way for students to review information that they’ve learned about the role of citizens under Georgia’s constitution (as outlined by the Georgia Performance Standard: SS8CG1). Topics include: Georgia’s Constitution, separation of powers, checks and balances, voting qualifications, elections, political parties, and the Pledge of Allegiance to the Georgia Flag. Task Cards are a fun (and sneaky) way of getting students to answer questions that would normally be on boring, old worksheets! Students love working with them!
