The Articles of Confederation was not a total failure - it gave us the Land Ordinance of 1785, which we still use today in regard to surveying land! Your students are going learn about the Land Ordinance of 1785 via PowerPoint presentation and then practice utilizing the skill of reading and marking a "Township and Range" grid. It's a great challenge for students, and they are always excited to see if they got it right. This product is going to be a huge time save for you because everything is ready to go so all you have to do is make student copies.

Check with your local museum or city hall to see if they have plat maps you can borrow so students can see where their own homes are on the Township and Range grid.
It's always great to help them understand the world they live in just a little better.
