This package includes no prep, ready to use notes on the assembly, council of 500, and the courts. Have your students go through the notes individually, or in groups ( jigsaw) and then fill out the summarizer page ( 3 key points). And then move onto the fun part...
There are also 6 role playing scenarios included. They are meant for one student to voraciously read in front of the class, and the class must guess which system they are from.
The lesson activities are explained in full in the product.
