US Government Stations Activity - The Constitution *Print & Go Prep*

Looking for a fun way to get your students talking, moving, and collaborating? Look no further!

This Station Activity will get your students moving while introducing them to the content that will learn throughout the unit.

How the Lesson Works:

★ This lesson is made up of six stations that will allow your students to discuss the following topics:

Station 1 - Who Has the Power? (Close reading about powers of the Executive Branch)
Station 2 - Can You Imagine Life Without (Ranking Personal Importance of the amendments in the Bill of Rights)
Station 3 - Oh Snap! (The Founding Fathers)
Station 4 - Checks and Balances
Station 5 - Dear Americans… (The Federalist Papers)
Station 6 - Who Wanted the Bill of Rights? (Close reading about the Founding Fathers and the Bill of Rights)
★ This activity can be completed by individual students or by teams of students with one answer sheet.

★ The stations are designed to be completed in ten to fifteen minutes. The entire lesson will take sixty minutes to complete.

★ Many of the stations involve writing opinions rather than facts, so there is not always necessarily a correct or incorrect answer. I’ve included a sample answer sheet to give you an idea of how students can respond to these prompts.

★ This purchase includes the six station cards, supplemental files for three of the stations, a student answer sheet, a sample completed answer sheet, a Notes for Teachers document explaining each station with tips and tricks.

★ All files come in a PDF format.

Required Materials:

★ One of the stations require devices for watching a video on Google Drive YouTube and two stations have optional digital versions of the articles that can be used in place of the printed versions. Any device with an internet connection will work.
