Here, they will go through the process of writing a bill. Next, the bill will go to the executive branch, where the president will veto or pass the law. Finally, an issue regarding the law will come up. The law will go to the Supreme Court and they will decide if it is constitutional. Each branch will be involved in the simulation activity. While your branch is waiting for some action, you will be deepening your knowledge of government and your branch with this web quest. There is a part A and a part B. Everyone does the same research for part A, which is about our government. Part B is more specific to your branch.
