Students review the people, ideas, and key terms from the period of the Articles of Confederation by mixing and matching 30 terms to their images and identifications and answering 8 review questions. Students create their own images for 7 terms (a written example is included). This includes a page of teacher instructions and the answers where appropriate.
The topics and people covered include: the Northwest Ordinance of 1787, Shays Rebellion, Hamilton, the Virginia Plan, the New Jersey Plan, the Connecticut Compromise, the Constitutional Convention, and more!
Sample questions include:
--Why was it so difficult to get laws passed or amended under the Articles of Confederation?
--Explain the phrase “not worth a continental.”
--Identify 2 federal powers, 2 state powers, and 2 shared powers. Do you think this system is effective, why or why not?
--Why was Shay’s Rebellion a wake up call for America?
