Branches of Government

This site would be a great review after learning about the 3 branches of government. It has the 3 branches listed with a word bank of all of the jobs. The students will click and drag the jobs under the correct branch of government. This should be used as a review because there is no real explanation of the branches and jobs.

Sentence Clubhouse

With this site students will get to create their own clubhouse. To get pieces for your clubhouse you have to correct a sentence by adding a capital letter at the beginning and correct punctuation at the end. You also have to tell if the sentence is a statement, question, command, or exclamation. Each correct answer and you get to add to your clubhouse. If you complete your clubhouse you can start again to create a completely different clubhouse.
