The purpose of our display was to coincide with the new administration choosing the new cabinet members for the top federal agencies. The main focus was on the Government agency, not necessarily the person  who was put in charge.

On each sheet, I included the agency name, logo, name of the cabinet member, a mission statement or main idea of the agency and possibly another symbol of the agency on the bottom. With this display, we decided not to highlight specific documents. Instead we wanted to educate people about what each agency does.

The picture of the chart "Government of the United States" was a blow-up of page 22 out of the U.S. Government Manual. Basically everything on the display I got off the Web.(except for the banner on top). I am sending 3 pictures, 1 of the whole display, and 2 close-ups so you could see what the pages say. For the various other items, I scanned the dollar stores and teaching tools type of stores. It is very basic, and to the point. We only have a bulletin board, so I am limited to flat items that can be stapled or possibly hung with string.
