Executive Roles: Money Doesn't Grow on Trees?

Lesson Plan

Students learn the role of the executive branch in creating and carrying out laws.  Through role-play, the class models the legislative and execution processes as they create a new coin in order to learn how the executive and legislative branches work together. They follow the new coin from its inception as an idea in the executive branch to its creation at the U.S. Mint.
