Constitution Relay Game

Vicki Hansen's insight:

Race the clock to answer questions about the Constitution.  Great interactive game that can be played individually or as a group.  If you are stuck with an answer participant can "buy and answer" which adds time to the overall contest.  Very high interest for upper elementary on up.
