In this activity/project, students need to draft their best "fantasy football team" made up of great Americans!
Students will select a quarterback (past President), running back (American inventor), wide receiver (American author), tight end (American activist), and a kicker (American musician). Students pick each football player based on a point system set up for each position (i.e. the quarterback gets points for each election won).
Included in this packet is a detailed description of each position, a breakdown of the point scale for each position, a detailed method of calculating the points, and a rubric for grading this activity/project. This exciting activity/project will allow students to practice their research skills while drafting great Americans, practice math skills while calculating their team points, and will drive students to do the best possible job in order to have the highest scoring team in the class.
