If you teach government don't miss this great post! This government game on branches of government first shows students what each branch is responsible for, then students match the responsibility to the branch. It's almost like a memory game!
Make learning about the local, state and federal government more fun with a sprinkle of fairy dust! This unit kicks off with a read-aloud (or guided reading) story written at the 3.2 reading level called "Jenny and the Government Fairy". Start out with four activity sheets that go with the story, and match language arts Common Core Standards for 3rd grade. Then move on to teaching handouts, and activities (including quizzes) that teach students about federal, state and local government! $
This cut and paste activity is a way to assess individual students' knowledge of the functions of government. This activity is aligned with the Grade CSCOPE/TRS Social Studies Lesson - "What is the Purpose of Government"
