Students turn the power cards face down.
Students can work individually, in pairs or in groups of 4.
Students turn the cards over one at a time and place them in the correct place according to Federalism.
**What works best for me is to have multiple groups (I have built 8 sets but generally use only 4 or 5 at a time) working together and have the groups compete to see which group can complete the board in the shortest amount of time. Students love competition and really get into this.
I usually have half my class playing this game, while the other half play the Federalism Card game https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Federalism-Card-Game-2415039.
I have the class switch at the midpoint of class.
I have the games bundled together for one price. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Federalism-Board-Game-and-Card-Game-Bundle-2415065
I make the board on a poster maker we have at school, but the board can easily be made to game board size at a copy store or Staples. I print the game cards out on card stock and laminate them and they last for years.
Set includes instructions and answer sheet.
Each really do teach Federalism. Together you will really see the difference.
