Government Freebies

We've moved on from matter to government in our social studies/science block of our day. Social Studies was always one of my favorite subjects in school, so it's something I really enjoy teaching.  With our new Ohio standards, we are really focusing on the purpose of the Constitution and the branches of government with our new model curriculum.  I used a few pieces of my sweet friend Amanda's We the People Constitution Unit on Constitution Day and I'm so excited to use the rest this upcoming week. :)

I created some supplemental materials to use with my kiddos this week and thought I'd share them with you. :) 

A flip book for your students to record their notes for the three branches of government.  I've included a sheet of lined paper in the download for your students to record their notes on.  To use, just simply run the flip book cover and the lined paper 1-1 sided on you copier and use the two staple on the side feature if your stapler offers it.  If not, just staple twice on the side. :) I love flip books, they're perfect for introducing note taking to my fourth graders. 
 Our new standards also has students determine ways they can be responsible citizens, so I created this reflection sheet to use with my kiddos.  

I hope that one or either of these freebies can be useful to you.  If you would like to download them, I have uploaded them both to Google Drive.   Just click on either of freebie images or {here} to download. 

I have already shared these documents with you, so there is no need to request that I do once you are in Google Drive.  My bloggy pal Courtney has a great tutorial {here} for downloading documents from Google Drive.

I hope each of you had a great Monday! If you are able to use one of these freebies, I'd love if you followed my blog or left me a comment below! :) Have a great evening!
