Does anyone have any ideas of how to creatively introduce the three branches of government to third graders? I am a student teacher and this is my first lesson that I am "planning" on my own. I want to make it fun for the students by possibly incorporating some type of art into it or something similar. It needs to only be a short lesson-40 minutes. It is not a whole unit, so I don't need a week's worth of activities--just something to introduce the three branches and then a fun project to go along with it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
