All Federalism All the Time in History Class Today

Our American history classes learned about federalism today. We explored questions of leadership and efficiency by making human pyramids. First we used large groups with a single leader, and then we did the same activity in small, cooperative groups. We compared the pros and cons of each to figure out why our country employs the concept of federalism.

Do you have it, students? It might come back on a test.
