The Articles of Confederation the Structure of Government differentiated instruction bundle is based on the 7th grade NYS curriculum and standards. It differentiates instruction by providing different ability levels. Below is what is included in this lesson plan:

Lesson Plan with notes
3 Ability Levels of Vocabulary Sheets
Enriched Note Sheets that work with both PowerPoints
Basic Ability Level Note Sheets for Enriched PowerPoint
Basic Ability Level Note Sheet for Basic PowerPoint
2 Ability Levels of Cause and Effect Critical Thinking Activity
Cause and Effect Critical Thinking Activity Answer Sheet
Homework Paragraph Writing with Grading Checklist

The content that is included in this social studies differentiated instruction lesson plan is as follows:

1. Congress was the only branch of government
2. Each state had equal representation
3. Congress's power under the Articles included:
a. making war and peace
b. Conducting foreign and Native American Indian affairs
c. The settlement of disputes between and among states
d. Issuance of currency and borrowing.
(Above was taken directly from the NYS curriculum)

There is a leveled PowerPoint that is included in this bundle with two different ability levels of the same content; basic and enriched. You can separate your classes with a co-teacher and use both of them or you can choose the level that is most appropriate for the majority of your students.

I had to choose 60 minutes as my time because tpt does not offer 70. Please be aware that this lesson plan will take about 70 minutes to complete. Also, there is one link for Shays' Rebellion, as of 10/16/2013 it worked. I cannot guarantee links though because I do not control the internet. 10/16/2013 is when the last revision of this lesson plan and PowerPoint occurred.

This bundle helps you save $.50. However, you may be interested in only the lesson plan or only the PowerPoint. The following links will allow you to see the ratings of these two pieces of the bundle or purchase them separately.
