How Laws Are Made

Grades 2-5

In this class, students will explore the American system of government, learning about the roles of the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government, and about the role of voters and elections in choosing who makes and enforces the laws. With a nod to the famous Schoolhouse Rock video, students will follow the path of an idea for a new law through the system of government to see how it comes to fruition, and in doing so learn about our system of checks and balances, political participation, and governmental compromise.
