Product Description
Look no further! If you want your students to understand the difference between normal Apportionment and Gerrymandering, this is your activity! Your students will be able to take a politically and geographically accurate landscape of Wisconsin (With Conservative elephants and Liberal donkeys), and create two maps of their own. The first map will ask them to create "balanced and fair" congressional house districts, while a second map will have them create "partisan gerrymandered" districts. Each map comes with a "Reflection Question" to help them verbalize what they did, and how it could be fixed. The "Background Information" mentions several related topics connected to Apportionment, including the US Census, role of the State Legislature in drawing maps, political ideology, and how geography plays into voting patters (Urban versus rural). Your students will have a lot of fun with this! You can always have your own add-ons, such as having them color the districts or try to make the most unusual district shapes.
