How I Use It
Direct kids to the website to get started. Let them use the site at home to learn more about how the executive branch functions.
My Take
Overall, this is a very cool, fun little game that lets students get to be president and see how the executive branch functions and interacts with the other branches. It was much more interesting than I thought it would be, and I even got a little hooked on playing it myself.
