Hear ye, hear ye! All rise and draw near!
America's mice, with good will and good cheer,
Are pleased to announce and proud to report,
The opening term of the Mouse Supreme Court!
Just in time to simplify complex concepts about how our government works in memorable, age-appropriate ways comes Marshall, the Courthouse Mouse. Third in a series of delightfully illustrated children's books about the three branches of government, this title follows Chief Justice Marshall as he leads his fellow justices in deciding a rather "cheesy" case.
Reading the book and completing the activities featured in this guide introduces your students to the judicial branch of government and explains how our Supreme Court justices work to uphold the U.S. Constitution.
America's mice have a government too
With presidents, senators, and congressmice, who
Are elected, debate, vote the popular will--
It's a Rodent Republic on Capitol Hill!
Introducing the Squeaker of the House and the Senate Mouse-jority leader. As they deliberate a bill naming a National Cheese, your students will learn how the legislative process works. This encounter with some of the "big cheese" on Capitol Hill used alongside the activities included in this free classroom activity guide will introduce the legislative branch of governments, the differences between representatives and senators, and the law-making process.
As an ADDED BONUS these activities also provide opportunities to practice core curriculum skills such as reading comprehension, creative writing, research, and oral presentation.
