This resource includes a comparison chart between the Articles of Confederation and the U.S. Constitution. Students will compare both the structures of each government system, as well as the weaknesses of the Articles that were addressed in the Constitution. This resource includes two student handout versions of varying support, and an answer key. This resource can be used with any U.S. Government or U.S. History course.
1. One student handout comes with the structure and weaknesses of the Articles filled in. Students will then compare and fill in the U.S. Constitution side with a guide already in place.
2. The second student handout comes with directions, but leaves both the Articles and Constitution sides blank. This version requires students to do all the legwork.
