This activity is designed to have students split up into three groups, one group for each branch of government (you may choose to have more than one group for each branch depending on the size of your class) There are three sheets, one for each branch. The top half of all three sheets has the same introduction and then the bottom half has specific information for the branch they have been assigned to. After the groups have read the information and answered the questions, it will then be the students job to teach the rest of the class about their branch. While one group is teaching, a class chart can be made and students can fill out information about each branch. This activity helps students work on cooperative learning skills as well as public speaking skills as they teach the rest of the class about their branch in their own words.
