Product Description
Step into James Madison's shoes!!!

Students will get to make a presidential decision whether or not to engage in war with England (War of 1812).

We start with a short, simple reading on events leading up to the War of 1812.
Students then will decide what they would have done if faced with the same problem. After that, students will discuss what actions Madison took. Follow up is a current issue problem concerning the president, Congress and declaring war.

I use this as an introduction to the topic, which allows students to see if their decision would have been the same as Madison's. However, this can be a reinforcement activity as well.

This activity includes thought-provoking, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.

I use this with my 7th graders, but I could definitely see it used grades 7-12.
