Product Description
History, Take II:
In 1787, representatives from 12 of the 13 colonies came together to come up with a better system of government than the Articles of Confederation, which had been in use for only 6 years. Students (in groups) are to come up with a system of government that solves as many of the problems with the Articles as possible, while also staying within the given boundaries. This assignment comes with 11 different problems for the groups to "overcome" in their new and redesigned system of government.

Have your students think outside the box and relate their history directly to current experiences. With this activity, your students will learn how to prioritize their civil liberties, make connections to historical events, and learn to think critically about the deeper levels of our government.

Have a Happy Day!
