Free Technology For Teachers: Fantasy Congress

Fantasy Congress works like any fantasy sport. Participants draft players, in this case members of Congress, and earn points based on the performance of their draftees.

Applications for Educators
Fantasy Congress is a great activity for a middle school or high school civics course. Students will have vested interest in following Congressional actions as they actions of their draftees will impact their total score. With Fantasy Congress students learn by playing the game instead of just reading the rules of the game.
