Product Description
This document includes 10 scenarios that demonstrate the federal government’s separation of powers and checks and balances. Eight of the scenarios are actual historical events that happened in our government, the other two are hypothetical situations.

I generally split my students into groups and display the scenarios on the screen using poweroint. The groups have to write down two things: 1. Who has the power to check this action? 2. What is the power?

Topics include: Supreme court nominee approval, presidential veto, congressional override, Senate approval of treaties, presidential pardons, judicial review, impeachment power, Congressional organization of the court system, Congressional power to declare war, set budgets and pass bills
