Separation of Powers/Qualifications of Office

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Time to work together in class to understand the separation of powers as well as the qualifications for office! The resource includes terms to review for pre-knowledge before beginning instruction. Following the review, pupils work on a study guide to answer questions relating to the Constitution and separation of powers, which leads to a helpful class discussion.
