To review important words and names associated with the legislative branch of government.
1 class period
Students begin this lesson by reviewing the definitions of 34 terms related to the legislative branch of government. As they do so, have the kids underline or highlight the words that are particularly important to the meaning of each term. They can underline or highlight individual words or groups of words, but should not use more than half the definition.
After reading through the list of legislative branch key terms, this information is then used to help class members complete a crossword puzzle, which my students always enjoy.
Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
