PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

What makes an effective government? That is the question that guides this lesson about the Articles of Confederation.

The lesson begins with a motivational activity in which students respond to a quotation presented on a powerpoint slide.

Students then move into small groups and, pretending they are stranded together on a desert island, must answer a few questions about the kind of government they would create together on their island.

Student groups then present their plans for government and the class takes notes about the strong and weak points of each group's plan.

The teacher then segues into the content portion of the lesson in which the weak points of the Articles of Confederation are presented. (Along with the strong points-yes, there actually were a few!)

At the conclusion of the lesson, students complete a writing activity (which can be used as a homework assignment or entrance activity the following class period) regarding the weaknesses of the Articles.
