Questions About Remote Learning?

Activity Overview

It's beneficial for students to take a focused look at key questions when learning about more complex topics, such as the composition and responsibilities of the Executive Branch. In this activity, students will create a spider map that represents the 5 Ws of the Executive Branch. For each question provided, they will respond by creating a visualization of their response, along with a brief written description below their representation. This can be used as an introductory activity or as a summative assignment at the end of the unit.

  • WHO is a member of the Executive Branch?
  • WHAT is the purpose of the Executive Branch?
  • WHERE are the members of the Executive Branch usually located?
