Recreating the Constitutional Convention

Through this simulation, students will understand that the Founders knew and accepted their Constitution despite its flaws, and that they all understood that some issues (i.e. slavery) would need to be resolved in the future. In this way, they can analyze the Constitution not as a “perfect” document created by fifty-five friends, but a true reflection of the period, the people, and the issues dividing those who struggled within it.
