A Smart Notebook presentation that I made for my 3rd grade class. It walks through the 3 branches of government with the kids. It also has opportunities to click on attached links to visit various government sites. I also tried to include some matching games for definitions, pictures of important government buildings, charts showing how government power "flows", and some fill in the blanks. It would be a good review (if you had already taught the 3 branches) or a good introduction.
