Simple graphic organizer to accompany the fun loving, exceedingly humorous School House Rock video, How a Bill Becomes Law.
I like to begin the class probing students ideas of how they believe a bill becomes law, then I show the School House Rock video, which they usually find hilarious. We review the graphic organizer through a cold call and I ask students if they agree with each other. I close the class with the SNL skit of how a bill comes law.
