Wanted-A “Just Right” Government:Lesson Plan


This lesson plan is to teach students how the U.S. Constitution came to exist.  Students discover what tensions and differences of opinion existed among early American states and citizens.  Students find out about the Articles of Confederation and why that first “constitution” didn’t work, and how compromise led to the Constitution.

Separate documents contain the Teacher Guide and the Notetaking Worksheet with Crossword Puzzle. Teacher Guide includes guides for both the Power Point and overhead options.
