UNIT 4: The Constitution and Early Years of the Republic
US CITIZENSHIP PRACTICE TEST: https://my.uscis.gov/en/prep/test/civics/view
March 6th - 10th
Monday 3/6 - IF you are done with your Yearlong Project I would like you to complete this online activity (you cannot save your progress since we are not members) that will help you understand the issues our nation faced AFTER the Constitution was ratified (passed). During the "early years" of our nation (1790s - 1820s) there were still many arguments over "how should the powers of government be distributed between the federal government and the states?"
Tuesday 3/7 - IF YOU ARE DONE WITH YOUR YEARLONG PROJECT: Complete Monday's online activity first. Then check your Google Docs for Cabinet Battle #1 and #2. Read and annotate. We will listen to these "rap battles" on Wednesday in class to understand that issues the early nation was facing.

Hamilton - Cabinet Battle #1
WARNING: There are a couple inappropriate words throughout the song, so students might not be able to access the video at school. If you watch at home try to get the big idea. What were Hamilton and Jefferson arguing over?
Hamilton - Cabinet Battle #2 - images added by a student :)
WARNING: There are a few inappropriate words in the song, so students might not be able to access the video at school. If you watch at home try to get the big idea. What were the cabinet members and President Washington divided on regarding France? Do these arguments still apply to today?
