I'm getting ready to start a unit on the 3 branches of government. Does anyone having any good resources I might be able to use? I teach 2nd grade.

Thanks!

I taught 2nd grade in 2007 and made this book with my students. The white spaces are where the students illustrated. All of my teaching materials are in storage so I cannot give you the name of the book we read to gain the information for the page we did daily.

We also got the cd/dvd of Schoolhouse Rock "I'm Just a Bill."

I also have the bulletin board labels that described the photos I had downloaded. (President, 3 branches of government, US buildings...)

I teach 5th grade and use this website all the time. I'm sure the K-2 version is just as good.
http://bensguide.gpo.gov/k-2/index.html

Also there is Congress for Kids. May be a little harder, but if you use it together it may work. http://congressforkids.net/Constitution_index.htm

The Center on Congress is a great site for older children, may give you some background information.

As for activities I have had my students make mobiles to visualize the balance between the 3 branches. I collect wire hangers from the cleaners and have some photos that I took of the buildings. They must tell who works in the branch, where they work, what the responsibilities and other information (I cannot think right now and the project is at school.)
