Articles of Confederation Simulation and PowerPoint

Articles of Confederation Simulation and PowerPoint
Product Description
For U.S. government and U.S. History classes, the Articles of Confederation is often taught by simply talking about the weaknesses/problems they contained. This can be disengaging for some students. In this lesson (zip file), I have created a PowerPoint Presentation that discusses the basics of the Articles of Confederation, its provisions and weaknesses, and effects that followed from. In addition, imbedded in the lesson is a mini-simulation that goes in-depth on the issue of various currencies during the time period. The simulation allows students to engage themselves in the lesson and builds on their critical thinking and problem-solving skills by answering debrief questions after the activity. This lesson can be used in both U.S. government and U.S. History classes.
