Roles of the President

Students read a document which explains the roles and responsibilities of the President of the United States. In groups, they tour the George Bush Presidential Museum and participate in a Presidential scavenger hunt. Once back in the classroom, they pretend they are stranded on an island and must create their own form of government. They share their ideas with the class to end the lesson.
