Utah's Legislative Branch: How a Bill Becomes a Law

Seventh graders discover how a bill becomes a law in Utah. In groups, they decide on a law they would like to see enacted and discuss its chances of being passed by the legislative branch in Utah. They hold elections in which each classmate role plays a different member of the three branches. To end the lesson, they vote on the bill and discuss how it can be brought up for review.
