Government
Teacher Notes

Divide your classroom into three distinctive areas and use signage to indicate the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches. In each section have individual signs indicating the different parts of each branch. Assign students to each branch and position. Have each student after doing some research explain their function.

I did not realize how you could make a real difference in government until I moved to Cape Cod, Massachusetts.  I enjoyed going to town meeting and being able to speak out publicly and be listened to.  The process of helping create a town charter made me appreciate government more.
