This lesson works well with Florida Civics Standard 7.C.3.13.
In this lesson students will compare and contrast key components of the U.S. and Florida Constitutions using an easy to understand graphic organizer. This activity alone is very effective, but I’ve also included a planning form and guidelines to writing a complete compare/contrast essay.
This purchase includes everything you need EXCEPT a copy of the US Constitution, for which I recommend using your annotated student textbooks.
The graphic organizer activity usually takes 2 class periods. The essay component could take an additional 3-5 class periods.
***You should download my FREE accompanying PowerPoint titled "Compare and Contrast Florida and US Constitutions- Activity PowerPoint" which walks students through the steps of this activity and includes an answer key for the student worksheet.***
