Educator Resources for Law Craft

LawCraft is a game that teaches students how the two houses of Congress compromise to create laws. Players take the role of a Representative or Senator in the U.S. Congress. They will need to choose an issue and select from a variety of amendments to create a bill, while paying attention to how much support each amendment has among other Representatives or Senators. Students will have to work to compromise with the other chamber—and, if necessary, the President—to create a bill that will be signed into law. If you’ve already played Branches of Power, then LawCraft will probably look familiar. LawCraft is similar to the legislative section of Branches of Power, but it adds the additional components of political parties and compromise between the House and the Senate.
