The Legislative Branch Lesson Plans


When the Founding Fathers established the American government, they made a system of checks and balances so no one part of the government would have too much power. One of these, the Legislative Branch, was created to make laws, that the other two branches would enforce and judge. With the activities in this lesson plan, students will develop a closer connection to the law-making process and recognize why the law-making process can be so difficult in our very diverse society. At the end, they'll be able to answer the question "What does the Legislative Branch do?".
