Looking for an easy way to teach the basic structure of the US Government to your middle school students? This powerpoint includes simple notes on each branch plus directions on how to use the notes to create a tri-fold brochure representing the three branches of U.S. government.
I have used these notes and the brochure activity for two years and the students have responding positively each time. It is a great way to prepare students for an assessment of the U.S. government structure. Also included in the powerpoint is a graphic organizer (chart) that represents each branch's individual structure. This is a great way to help out your visual learners!
