This is a Web search on the website Opensecrets.org. It is great for showing the students just how much money is involved in campaigns today. It also touches on lobbyists, the revolving door, getting local (which you will have to cater to your own zip code) and reelection rates. It is 5 pages long and should take at least 30 minutes for the students to complete. They also have a chance to peruse the website and create 3 of their own questions and answers. THE WEBSITE CHANGES OFTEN so you may have to tweak some of it. However most of it stays the same.
