Why use Fantasy Congress? Check out this video…
Join more than 80,000 people who have signed up for Fantasy Congress and are using it in high schools and colleges across the country.
Fantasy Congress is a free online educational game modeled after Fantasy Sports.
It’s just like fantasy football, but instead of being a coach selecting football players, you’re a political insider who selects real-life Members of Congress. Your team of Senators and Representatives earn you points as they legislate, get in the news, and vote.
The game is perfect for teaching politics!
By playing the game, students follow their Members of Congress more closely. That means:
– Students pay more attention to current events, including legislation, votes, and news. Complex issues in the national debate are brought forward for discussion.
– Additionally, Fantasy Congress uses the real-life Congress to assist in meeting state and national standards, including AP Government courses, high school government courses, and college courses.
– Why watch SchoolHouse Rock over and over again when students can actually follow the real-life progress of a bill becoming law?
– Lastly, it’s fun! Whether it’s competing over a grade, extra credit point, or a digital trophy, news on a member of Congress becomes news about a potential selection or swap for a better member of Congress.
It’s free and easy to get started, so don’t wait. Just click the this button to start playing politics!
