Great introductory activity to introduce the Executive Branch.
Good tool for a gaining interest of lower level students. It could be improved upon by adding more complexity for older students.
How I Use It
I use this as an introductory activity for the Executive Branch. It works well as a homework assignment prior to the first Executive Branch lesson. Students play the game for homework and must achieve a certain score. As they reflect upon their game playing experience, I ask them to create three questions they have about this branch and bring it to class with them. Students share their questions as a sponge activity the first day of the new unit.
