ideas for modified government unit??

I have a 5th grader in my SS class with Downs. With a ton of parent support and some modification, she's done everything the rest of the class has done as we've studied US history through the Revolutionary War. Now, however, we're on Government and she's struggling. I told her mom that maybe we should focus more on what the government can and cannot do. However, when Dad emailed asking for more specifics my mind went blank. Any suggestions on how to modify this topic for my student with special needs??

I taught this earlier in the year and got some great ideas from the internet and from PT. I am going to attach a few different documents that might help.

Here are flashcards I found on-line. These make the facts easy and she could be responsible just for this knowledge...all important facts to know.

kmob - thanks so much for posting these government resources! I have 2 fifth grade students with limited intellectual ability who are struggling to understand the Constitution and branches of government. These will really help!
