If you have ever played fantasy sports, this 2-3 day lesson simulating a fantasy sports draft using historical figures. Students will work in groups to select the best U.S. History fantasy team.
Students love taking part in this activity. Great for review or modified any way you please. It's important that groups explain each pick and that it makes sense with other people they have chosen. Leads to some heated debate.
This package includes a fantasy draft board (I projected to the class and typed in people they chose throughout), instructions, lesson plan, rubric, and historical figures to be chosen.
