We have hit the basics of Congress – so now it’s time to head to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue! To prepare for our next class, you have some “must dos”, some “can dos”, some “fun dos”, and some “holy smokes I really love this government stuff dos”.
TRY TO DO – Complete Article II of the Constitution analysis, focusing on the targets – it’s so much shorter than Article I! Also, pay some attention to the news to see what President Trump is doing, not doing, saying, and not saying.
CAN DO – If your class was able to see the hats of the President, let’s see if you can apply your knowledge. Check out the 7 Hat Challenge from Scholastic for about five minutes – see how many you get right! You can also watch Crash Course – Presidential Powers for some more info!
FUN DO – – Play one four-year term of Executive Command – it will give you an idea of all that the President has to do! If you want a couple of Executive Branch links, you came to the right place … The Executive Branch | The White House / Federal Executive Branch | USA.gov / Presidential Fun Facts
HOLY SMOKES I REALLY LIKE THIS GOVERNMENT STUFF DO – Like trivia? Try out Taft’s Presidential Trivia #1? Good times learning about the Chief Executives … and I am sure there are some Jolly Ranchers in store for the people that get the answers all right!
