Courtney says, “This is a great game for students to learn about the government. The pacing, characters, and simplicity of Branches of Power also make it a fun refresher for adults (I can attest; I played it just now).”
Branches of Power is a classic learning game for young people created by iCivics. Players generate ideas, gain support, and pass bills by making decisions through the three branches of government. The pacing, characters, and simplicity of the game also make it a fun refresher for adults. Like many iCivics games, Branches of Power includes additional resources (https://www.icivics.org/teachers/lesson-plans/branches-power-extension-pack) for using the game as an instructional tool.
