Fun way to reinforce information on the three branches of government
I used this product with my 8th grade students as part of our unit on the Constitution. Though we read and analyze the Constitution, many students don't spend the time to truly understand the different parts of the Constitution and thus don't understand the structure of the US government. Even though, it probably is geared toward younger students, my 8th grade students still enjoy playing it and appreciate the game aspect of it.
How I Use It
I use the game as a "what to do when I am finished" and also assign it to everyone as homework. Since I use it as a supplemental resource, it's not imperative that all students finish the homework, but they all do. Saving (well, not saving) is an issue.
