PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Have your students learn about gerrymandering by gerrymandering their own state! Included here are a lesson plan, a guided notes sheet, a congressional districts map analysis activity, and a simulation game with game directions. In the simulation game, students learn how gerrymandering can give a grotesquely unfair advantage to political parties in elections by drawing their own legislative districts on an imaginary state. This lesson plan provides a series of highly engaging experiential activities that will have your students asking some very important questions about how democracy works!
