PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Essential Question: In a federal system of government, which should hold more power: the National Government or the State Governments?

Students are given the lists of powers granted to specific governments. They then must choose whether they think the state government or the federal government should have that power and explain why. They must also give their position on implied powers, denied powers, services, and initiative, referendum, and recall.
Once students have worked through the scaffolding on where they would put each of the powers, they are asked to write their own federal system manifesto, where they explain how they would lay out the powers of our government system.

Includes rubric for grading final product.

This activity works great as a culminating activity, or can be used as a guide as you teach students about the different powers of the governments.
