Product Description
Let your students really engage in the decision to build the Panama Canal by asking them to serve as President Roosevelt's advisers on the subject! In this activity, you will divide your class into small groups--each of which will act as a presidential advisory committee. The groups will each receive a folder of documents all related to considerations that the United States had to weigh before deciding to move forward with the project. The documents include multiple primary and secondary sources to analyze. Expect to spend 2 to 3 [45-minute] class periods on this activity. For the last block of time, do your best Theodore Roosevelt impersonation and invite each committee to present their proposal to you!
