This is a GREAT template in Microsoft Word for your students to create a Government brochure. It comes with a checklist of guidelines that you can adjust as needed.
It covers GPS:

a. Explain why in the United States there is a separation of power between branches of government and levels of government.
b. Name the three levels of government (national, state, local) and the three branches in each (executive, legislative, judicial), including the names of the legislative branch (Congress, General Assembly, city commission or city council).
