Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To become familiar with the organization of the Senate and the role it plays in the United States government.

TIME:
1 class period

This lesson includes a simple but unique game that kids really enjoy!

Begin by passing out pages 44A-44C. Give class members time to read information about the United States Senate, underlining or highlighting key words, names, terms, and ideas.

The class is then divided into five teams that will compete against each other in a game reviewing the United States Senate.

When a question is asked by the teacher (from pages 44D and 44E that students do not yet have), the first person to raise their hand will be called on. If their answer is correct, all class members will print the person, word, or term along the top row of spaces in the game form for the team that gave the right answer. For example, if the answer was "Congress," spaces 1-8 would be filled in with one letter each.

The team which fills its 100 spaces first with letters of correct answers wins the game. If no team can do this by the end of the period, then the team with the most spaces filled wins the game.

Complete game rules are provided on the lesson pages.

When the game is over, or when time runs out at the end of the period, you can give each student a copy of pages 44D and 44E to do as a quiz or review exercise.
