Who's Got the Power?

OK, I'm totally procrastinating here!  I should be creating a test for our novel study of "Love That Dog" by Sharon Creech, but I wanted to share with you a quick activity I made for my class. 

We are currently studying the writing of the Constitution.  We looked today at Federalism and how "We the People" have given certain powers to certain levels of government.  I am in need of another grade to add to my social studies grade book, and I love a good sort.  So I created an activity for my students to complete. 

 Click on the picture above to to download a copy!
Basically the cards have a super short scenario.  The student must read the card then determine which level of government has been delegated that power.  It is simply a quick and dirty sort...but it is also a quick and dirty assessment (and grade if you need one like me!).

Happy Sorting!


  1. I love this! Starting it the week after next! Thank you!

  2. I am so sad because for some reason, your posts aren't showing in my feed anymore! I've unsubscribed, then resubscribed, and it hasn't helped... so I have to consciously remember to come check on you, which I do, but darn I wish I had remembered before today because that would have been PERFECT to do Thursday! We just wrapped up our unit on Friday! Poo. I saved it for next year though. Thank you!
