This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 6, Unit 9, Grade 6. Students design districts in three towns to "gerrymander" the results of elections. In two of the towns, the election results can be skewed to either color. In the third, it isn't possible to skew the results. Arrange students in groups of 2-4. Explain the history of gerrymandering: Sometimes people in charge of designing districts make them in strange shapes to give the election results they want.
