Product Description
In this activity, students work individually (or I do it in pairs) to literally construct what their "ideal" congressperson would be like. They choose their name, gender, race, year in office, education, which house of congress, issues to deal with, committees to serve on, etc... They also have to decide which character traits and values are the most important to them, such as "Belief that veteran leaders of Congress have the best interests of constituents", or "Believes there should be term limits in Congress". The activity culminates with students (on their own time) following a set of instructions to create a visual representation for my classroom wall. It's a good way for them to delve into the roles of those in Congress and the convictions they must face.
