This lesson bundle includes materials needed to set up a game meant to teach students about the Articles of Confederation.
Students will be placed into State Groups of varying size and given an uneven number of resources, which they will use to play a game with rules that contain a number of problems and which will likely lead to disagreement among groups, much like the problems with the Articles of Confederation led to disagreements among states in early America.
A PowerPoint guides teacher students through the game with step-by-step directions for setup and play. There are also talking points for class discussion at the end. This .pdf contains printable resources necessary for game play.
