In Power Play, you’ll coach a team of players competing to win power for state or federal government!


Teammates will offer arguments that, if persuasive, will pull power statues toward the side you’ve chosen. But use your players wisely — the wrong argument will make a player fall or even move the power toward the other side!  


  • Distinguish between arguments that states or the federal government should have more power
  • For specific government powers, identify arguments about where each power should lie (with the states or the federal government)
  • Dismiss irrelevant arguments
