This is a graphic organizer and an activity to help students gain full understanding about four political philosophers that influenced the Founding Fathers in creating the U.S. Constitution. The graphic organizer can be used with PowerPoint notes or with a reading.
The "What Would a Philosopher Say" Activity allows for students to apply the basic understanding of each philosopher to five basic statements. Students can get into groups or you can have a Philosopher Hot Seat for each of the statements. If you have any questions on how I've implemented this into my classroom I'm happy to answer!
I hope you enjoy this activity as much as my students!
