Product Description
This is another student favorite! SPEED DATING in History class! Use this dating game to teach your students the dichotomy between Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson thereby understanding the issues in Washington's Presidency. The students take on the persona as "AMERICA" and make their way through speed dating sessions while using this ranking system for each issue:

4. I think it’s a match. This person’s views will lead America into the best future for America.
3. Very interesting. I need to learn more about this person. This may lead to an OK future.
2. I am not sure if this will lead to a happy America.
1. We do not have much in common. I do not think this is good for America.
This comes with links to videos that I created where Jefferson and Hamilton come to life as cartoon characters. They each will give short comments on their beliefs on things such as the economy, human rights, foreign policy, domestic policy ect...
This game can be completed without the video links, however, these make it that much more entertaining. If you have an ipad classroom, you can even make them into QR codes.

The VERY COOL Project that I assign after learning this material can be found here: Historicalheads
