Turn students into lawmakers with the new and improved LawCraft!

JULY 08, 2020

Engage your students in the hard work of lawmaking with our newly upgraded LawCraft! In the game, students navigate steps for crafting a law — from selecting a district to represent and reviewing letters from constituents to digging into survey data and drafting a bill that serves the people. As they complete each step, students learn to make compromises and balance competing issues while still passing a bill they’re proud of.
 
In this new release of LawCraft, we’ve improved the player experience with help from the Leonore Annenberg Institute for Civics at the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania. Play the game to explore the new updates.          
 
LawCraft will help students:

  • Simulate the lawmaking process of the U.S. Congress
  • Teach students how to balance competing interests to create laws that address national issues
  • Understand the relationship between a legislator and a diverse constituency
  • Evaluate legislation for impact on various socioeconomic groups
