Federalist/Anti-federalist Activity: according to the Federalist or Anti-Federalist perspective, students will analyze the issues of the power of the central government, the role of the president, and the bill of rights
★★ Note: When I give my students this activity, I split them up into heterogeneous groups and give each group a a perspective. It is my recommendation that you do not give the groups both worksheets for each perspective (you will see the worksheets). Give the Federalist groups their worksheet, and the Anti-federalist groups their worksheet only.
Differentiation: graphic organizer, research, cooperative (may work with a partner according to teacher's discretion for questions)
