We finished our government unit several weeks ago, but that is one of those VERY hard concepts for my students. I frequently feel the need to go back and review the three branches, because I don’t want students forgetting what they’ve learned. One of the hardest parts of this unit is identifying the roles and responsibilities of each branch of government, especially at each level of government. There are some really big vocabulary words and complex concepts for third graders! I’ve recently created government task cards that I plan to use to help reinforce these ideas and concepts. You can grab a copy by clicking on the picture:)
Every now and then we also review a little with our extra Government Fortune Tellers. These things seriously make anything fun for students!
