  • In this lesson, students will study a diagram that outlines congressional actions and use worksheets to answer questions about it. They will then match 20 game pieces, each identifying a congressional action, to the appropriate places on the diagram. They will use worksheets to analyze primary sources illustrating each of the 20 types of congressional action. They will identify the congressional action each document facsimile best reflects and place miniature document facsimiles on the diagram accordingly. They will conclude by answering reflection questions based on their work with the diagram. The lesson will be helpful for visual learners.
