How I Use It
I have used some of the activities with my fifth grade students, but this site is really geared toward 6-12 as it indicates. It's a great social studies extension for your advanced G/T learners and as a group lesson it can be adapted for upper elementary. I really like the Branches of Power game and my students do too. It's a great way to reinforce the three parts of government.
This is a great site. It is however not geared toward students who are in elementary school and I wish that they would develop a "junior" or "elementary" version so that younger students would benefit from the concepts. Requires good reading comprehension skills.
