Activity

Our classroom buddies are learning about the government and want to learn about how a bill becomes a law. The best way to teach someone is through a fun and engaging way that will motivate them-- like through a game. So you are going to create a game that will demonstrate how a bill becomes a law!!

1. First you must research the process of how a bill becomes a law as a group and complete graphic organizer. (Use google search here to help!)--- The teacher will walk around and be conferencing with you while you are doing this!
