Product Description

This resource tasks students with researching various interest groups that influence the United States government with power and financial contributions. The purpose of the activity is to demonstrate how interest groups function and what role they play in government.

This activity is a great activity in a U.S. History or U.S. Government course and can be used at the beginning, middle, or end of a unit.

In this activity, students will research various interest groups and find information related to mission statements, news stories, and purpose.

Many interest groups are already listed but the document can be easily modified to include others that may have been discussed in class. The listed interest groups for the activity are:

  • Mothers Against Drunk Driving
  • National Organization for Women
  • Veterans of Foreign Wars
  • Americans United for Separation of Church and State
  • National Association for the Advancement of Colored People
  • Common Cause
  • Eagle Forum

The activity also includes questions to guide students and also a task at the end for student's to create a piece of advertisement for one of the interest groups.

This resource is a Google Docs created resource. It is designed to be used with Google Classroom but can be printed as well. If you would prefer a Microsoft Word/PDF version of this resource please click the link: Interest Groups Research Activity.
