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 to reviewing letters from constituents and digging into survey data to 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.
