Campbellsville High School government students are studying the United States president’s powers.
In Susan Dabney’s AP U.S. government class, CHS sophomores have been discussing the recent president inauguration and some of President Donald Trump’s first actions in office.
Students learned that presidents often wear a lot of hats, meaning they have many powers that reach into several different parts of government.
As a project, students were asked to design a presidential hat that explains the president’s powers and when that particular power was used in history.
Dabney also asked her students to research instances in which a president used a power and it created some controversy.
Students could only use supplies available in Dabney’s classroom to make their hats.
When the hats were complete, students presented them to their classmates.
