This is a great simulation activity to do with students after they've learned about the Enlightenment Thinkers from the 18th Century. Students are tasked with re-creating society after a large disaster, and they must do so without any help from their teacher! This activity has students using their background knowledge on the Enlightenment to form a new society and government in a cooperative manner. Highly engaging and a lot of fun!! Can also be used as an assessment at the end or middle of your Enlightenment Unit as well.
