Materials needed: Glue sticks, scissors, 1 blank paper, dictionaries
This activity spices up Constitution studies with a fun activity where students get to learn the meaning of each "power" of the Legislature by cutting out the definitions of each power and glue them down next to the appropriate "power" of Congress.
The definitions will not match anything in their books or dictionary word for word, so they actually have to READ the definitions they find in dictionaries or glossaries and ANALYZE which ones match up. They then have to EVALUATE and rank the powers.
Students help each other and discuss and correct each other, all while you are checking and correcting their work as well.
They love the cutting and gluing part... the rest hurts their brains... just like we want! Hah hah hah!
