This lesson includes notes, activities, writings, map reading, and a simulation to help the students learn about the Legislative Branch of the U.S. government. Students will enjoy the hands-on activities while also writing about their thoughts. The lesson draws comparison among the federal, state, and local branches. Learning about our government is best done collaboratively, simulating what it is like in real life!
