Teacher Directed (15 min.): I will start by giving each student guided notes to follow along and
fill in while I present a PowerPoint on the functions and structures of the three branches of the
federal government. I will present the definition of each and give examples of what is apart of
the three branches. Students can ask questions when going through each slide.
Collaborative (15 min.): Students, in their groups of four, will be testing each others knowledge.
With their tablets, students will download the Quizlet app. Students will then use this app to
make their own flashcards of what they learn about the three branches of federal government so
far. Students can use their guided notes from the PowerPoint presentation. Students will practice
their flashcards with the people in their group.

Closure (5 min.): To close the class I will have each student complete an exit slip. This exit slip
is composed of four questions. The first three questions will be on the material that we learned in

todays lesson.
