Our Legislative Branch lesson plan introduces students to the Legislative Branch of the United States. Most students are familiar with some parts of the world of politics and government but are usually unsure of the two parts that make up Congress, the House, and the Senate. During this lesson, students are asked to number given Legislative Process steps in correct order from 1 to 10, demonstrating their understanding. Students are also asked to match terms with their definitions in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define the legislative branch of the U.S. government and identify and explain its roles and responsibilities.
