Constitution Day Anchor Chart: Branches of Government

Hi Readers,

I'm afraid I sort of have to "phone it in" in terms of a post for today because I'm having a bit of a health issue this week.  Nothing serious, I'm sure, but I'm just at that point where I know rest is better than blogging this week.  So in this post I'm going to quickly share an anchor chart I made and used with my class on Constitution Day, September 17.  It was a big hit, and I hope it helps your class next year!

    1. Thanks, Deb. :) Still not doing well; I've done something to my back and been in a lot of pain all week. It's actually worse sitting than standing so I can work just fine; it's leisure time on the computer here that is the problem!

  2. Love this! I have my 7th grade students create something similar in their cooperative learning groups. Yours is much neater than their final products :)

    1. Thanks Mrs. K! I take it as a high compliment when material I can adapt for fourth is useable (in a different context) for 7th. :)

    1. Sorry it took me a year to reply! I had to look up on my original poster and only just dug it out. From top to bottom:

      1. State courts
      2. City courts = municipal
      3. Town courts = magistrate

      In case the lower Legislative Branches are unclear to anyone else, for future reference, they say:

      1. State lawmakers are Senators
      2. Local Government has Lawmakers
