ARE YOU A FEDERALIST OR AN ANTI-FEDERALIST? This fun and creative project is perfect to assign when discussing the Constitution and Federalists and Anti-Federalists. This project requires students either individually or with a partner to take on the role of a Federalist or Anti-Federalist and create a song or rap, PowerPoint presentation, skit or commercial, poster, etc. to persuade people to join their side in the debate over ratifying the Constitution. This project requires zero teacher preparation (student directions and grading rubric are all included)!
My students had a blast creating clever song lyrics, comical skit lines, and dressing up to fit the part of either a Federalist or Anti-Federalist!
