Cabinet Web Sites

Each Cabinet Department has its own web site which contains information about the department, its history, the services it offers, and its mission statement.

Divide the class into teams of two and assign each team a Cabinet Department to study. Start by studying the mission statement of the department and that will help clarify what the goals and roles of each department are. Student pairs will design a project presentation to depict the information about their department to meet the criteria on the next page.
