This activity poses 11 new laws that would drastically affect the lives of your students. What if there were no more cell phones or social media, and all messages were hand delivered? What if education was only available to the upper classes of society? Students are asked to consider how these new laws would affect their lives, and then establish a plan for rebellion against their government. If they value the new laws, why?
This activity is designed to have students thinking about reasons to rebel, and what options are really available to them if they were not happy with their governments decisions. A great introductory lesson for learning about any revolution.
