The United States Congress is the only branch of government chosen exclusively by the people! Made up of the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, there are 535 members in Congress. Meeting several times a year in the capitol building in Washington, D.C., they work to make laws for our country, as well as many other important tasks. The term limits of House and Senate members are discussed, as well as the qualifications, background, and jobs each of these important people contribute to represent the citizens of the United States of America! This book will allow students to quote accurately from a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.
