How I Use It
I have not used this product yet, but upon reviewing it I immediately began to think of ways that I can incorporate it into various lessons that I teach. The aspect that works best is the way that the relationship between the three branches is illustrated within the context of the game. One thing that could be improved upon is the depth that is provided by the game. Advanced and gifted learners may become easily bored with it.
My Take
As a teaching tool, I find that this would be a great way for students to illustrate their understanding of the three branches of government as well as showcase their problem solving skills in order to successfully complete the game. I like how easily this could be implemented a variety of social studies classes. It is highly malleable to different aspects and lessons in social studies. It could serve students better is there was more depth in the content.
