Product Description
Students will bring the 3 branches of our government to life in this whole class script of We the People! The fast moving script reviews the roles and responsibilities of the legislative, executive, and judicial branches in a fun, relaxed way! This original play contains 24 parts featuring various reading levels to ensure whole class participation, differentiation, and engagement. Students will integrate important Social Studies concepts with key LA common core standards such as fluency and expression. This original play provides a rich and meaningful activity for students in the intermediate grades.
