Product Description
This simulation helps students to understand the crucial role played by our federal government by allowing students to experience firsthand the challenges that bureaucracy can bring. In this simulation, students take the role of states trying to agree on how to fund an environmental plan to clean up the Chesapeake Bay. After two days of discussion, debate, and proposals, they will better understand two important concepts in Constitutional History; the failures of the Articles of Confederation and the importance of the dominant role of national government in the system we call Federalism. This activity provides opportunity for students to dialogue and collaborate on a real-world issue in a fun, informative way. It is a perfect way to end your student of state vs. federal power or as a deeper exploration of the superiority of the Constitution over the Articles of Confederation.
