The three branches of government are included and it's importance to our state and national government.

    This activity begins by defining a preamble and explains the differences between the United States Preamble and the North Carolina Preamble. North Carolina Preamble reference cards are included for students. Students are required to rewrite the Preamble in their own words using a thesaurus.
