American Government: Poster Activity

if you are studying the branches of government, representative democracy, or distributive power, then this poster will fit right into your lessons.

Let your students show what they've learned about their studies of American Government by using this 8.5 x 11 poster. This poster will look great hanging outside your classroom, and parents will enjoy reading them when they are sent home.

I have marked this poster for grades 3-5, but please read the topics below to help you decide if it will work for you.

Grab your media specialist, check books out from the library to have in class, use your social studies book, watch videos, go to the computer lab, etc. Use whatever resources you would like to have students fill in the information.

NOTE: Don't forget to check my store for a HUGE variety of poster activities..... get one for all the holidays and other topics, too.

The American Government poster activity has plenty of places for students to add their own creative touches with color.

The sections for the students to fill out as a writing activity are:

*Place for their name
* name the 3 branches of government
* their main job
* headed by
* Explain what having a system of checks and balances means...
* definition of veto
* Government is necessary because...
*The constitution is important because..
* Explain what it means to have a representative democracy
* Laws are needed because....
*It's important to limit the power of people in authority because...
* examples of citizens' civic duties (ex, voting, meeting with representatives, stay informed, etc)

Use as a center activity, homework project, partner activity, before standardized testing, part of a unit test review, etc. Also, it's perfect for a sub. project if you have already studied these topics. Use it in your classroom however you would like.
