How I Use It
I use this as a summer activity for seniors to help them recall prior knowledge and gain a general sense of the processes unique to each branch and interrelationship between branches. I build upon this activity when the school year begins.
My Take
This product could be improved with the addition of extension activities that provided a platform for students to learn more specifics about about each process by researching online.
