Overview - UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT GAME
Covering 150 facts, The United States Government Game, by PCI's Kristina
Swann, offers a fun alternative to textbooks and worksheets. As students enjoy
the game format, they review important knowledge about the government of the
United States, their role in that government, and their rights as guaranteed
by the United States Constitution. This unique educational game complements
the Living in the United States series.
HOW THE GAME WORKS Players roll the die to move around the
game board. When a player lands on a square, he or she draws a Draw Card from
the appropriate pile. If the player draws a "Which Branch?" card, he or she
must identify in which branch of government an official belongs. If the player
draws a "Checks and Balances" card, he or she must answer a question about the
checks and balances of the three branches of government. If the player draws
a "Wild Card," he or she will answer a random question about the government.
