What I really appreciated about the Constitutional Convention role play materials is how thorough and clear they were. The role cards are excellent and give students enough background to play their roles effectively.
I found that students were much more interested in examining the real Constitution after they had designed their own as a class. Pointing out similarities and differences between the class version and the real version made the information much more “sticky” for them.
Any time teachers have the chance to bring a historical topic “to life” like that is fantastic. I really appreciate the work that went into creating these materials.
