American Government concepts are easier to understand when they are acted out in this fun school assembly. Leslie plays the part of a good idea trying to become a law. Along the way she gets voted on in congress, amended, reconciled, and vetoed.
We also explain the workings of the Electoral College and difference between popular vote and the electoral vote.
In the conclusion of the show, students help us take a humorous look at Presidential Order of Succession.
