Product Description
The framers of the Constitution accomplished what many people thought was an impossible feat; take thirteen independent states who wanted different things and create a national government which met the needs of the majority of the citizens. But how do you get students to understand how difficult it is to create a “more perfect union”? In this activity, students sit down and create their own constitution for their own national government. Students will work in groups to draft a blueprint for a government that meets the needs of all its citizens. Using their knowledge of the actual Constitutional Convention, they will also attempt to craft compromises based on the struggles of our own nation. Finally, after receiving feedback from their classmates, they will get the chance to amend their constitution. This fun, collaborative, and challenging project promotes critical thinking, comparison, and research in a way that also encourages inquiry about an important period of American History.
