I asked students to cut the descriptions out and then sort them between Federalists and Anti-Federalists. After I walked around and checked, students were able to glue the descriptions in and then add the chart to their lap books (email me for a picture of the lapbook- email@example.com)!
As a follow-up activity, I used sentence strips and magnets to create a larger version of the same chart on the whiteboard. Students were asked to come up and sort the magnets. You could also do a follow-up on the SmartBoard.
Even my most reluctant learners love sorts! I hope yours will, too!! :)
