Last week in social studies we learned all about the branches of government. This is such a hard concept for 2nd graders to grasp. To help them get a better understanding of the concept of the three branches, we used these booklets to help us out.
Each day we learned about a new branch.
We made these flip books in our journal. Under each flap, they wrote a few sentences describing each branch and what they had learned.
We wrapped up our unit on Friday by making this branches of government craft! I think they turned out great!
All of these activities can be found in my Branches of Government Mini Unit plus more.
