The Redistricting Game

Today when my AP Government team was meeting to discuss our next two weeks, Doug Zywiol mentioned the Redistricting Game which he likes to give to his students for an entire class period.  It is all about drawing boundaries for House seats and trying to gerrymander for your party and get it past the state legislature.  As you can see from the video above there are several different games you can play.  Your students will be frustrated and see how hard it is to draw boundaries.  You can also use it to teach the difference between reapportionment and redistricting.
