PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this activity, your students will create a handbook that addresses each section of the U.S. Constitution- Article I: The Legislative Branch. There are 13 pages in the handbook, each covering a different section/topic in Article I, that students will complete using their classroom textbook and/or the websites/QR Codes provided.

Once their handbook is complete they will cut out and staple their pages together to make a book! Fun!
