The Branches of Government

With this Clicker Board, students create a series of mind maps about the three branches of government, recording the responsibilities of each branch, who is involved, and the branches' roles in the system of checks and balances. There is a board for each branch.

On each board, click on a cell to add text. To add more cells, double-click on the background. When all the mind maps are complete, right-click on a board background and create a tabbed word bank for writing.
