I am a huge fan of differentiation, and this is a project I created to go with our government unit in Texas History, however it applies to all government classes and U.S. History classes. The items from the text book and ancillary materials are not included in this purchase, but the other worksheets and rubrics are.
This could be used several ways in your classroom: in traditional classroom style where each student does the worksheets you assign, choice style where the students make any three choices, tic-tac-toe style where they must make three-in-a-row, or any other style of your choosing! My students enjoy having some say in the activities they do, and I let them choose three, but they had to make a tic-tac-toe. I created the activities so that there was variety in all of the available three-in-a-row options.
We worked with this for four days in class. We completed the 7 Principles of the Constitution chart together, then they had the rest of the four days to complete the three activities they chose.
I hope you find these activities useful in your classroom. Please contact me with any questions or comments (or corrections!). Happy teaching!
