**REMINDER: Teachers, have students take a screenshot of their certificate at the end of the game and send it to you as proof of game completion. ** 

Power Play will teach your students how to win power for state or federal government. Students coach a team of players. Teams will develop arguments that, if persuasive, will pull power statues toward the side they've chosen— weaker arguments 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
