In this lesson, students will learn about the concept of federalism as a division of powers between one national and several state governments, the delegation of government powers flowing from natural rights to federal and state levels of government, and they will explore historical and current issues in the evolution and development of federalism. Using water in a pitcher and a jar and small cups, it visualizes powers between federal and state government as designed in the Constitution and as played out both historically and with present day current events. Teachers may want to update the events based on current issues. A good option for an ELD class to help students understand the concept.
