Activity Overview


In order to gain a deeper understanding of the early American government, students should take the time to understand the different documents, events, and ideologies that culminated in various compromises, the Articles of Confederation, and the eventual Constitution. Many of these ideals also spread into other countries and revolutions, fueling change in places like Britain and France.

Using a grid storyboard, students will identify, summarize, and explain different influences on early American government. This can include ideologies, documents like Common Sense and even the revolution. Teachers can choose to provide a list of things for students to select, or have them identify what they will use in their storyboard.

Extended Activity

Have students create a grid storyboard for America’s current government. Have them define topics they believe influence government today, making connections to the influences on early American government. Some topics can even be the same, with students directly connecting its past and current influence.
