The PP covers the Three Branches of Government: it's history, Checks and Balances. The responsibilities of each. It includes poetry written by me, a couple of fun facts. It includes illustrations and a quiz at the end of the PP. There are other activities suggested with this pp. such as writing prompts, group activities, poems, and a quiz. Can be used as flash cards, just shrink the Power Point...I did not set a timer because manually allows the class to read whole group and TTT (think, turn, talk) for interactive discussion.
