Product Description
First students learn all about why and how the founding generation created the Articles of Confederation during the Revolutionary War, and why it was so weak and ineffective, leading to calls for a Constitutional Convention.

They then analyze the problems and arguments faced at the Constitutional Convention, and propose compromises and solutions to these controversial issues. This is great as group work and/or discussion. After that, they read about the actual compromises made at the Convention to make the Constitution a reality, including the "Great Compromise" and the cringe-worthy "3/5's Compromise".

Finally, they then take notes (teacher notes provided) about the division of power between the national and state governments.
