Zipped File Download [PDF's and PowerPoint]: American Constitution Day 4 - Amendments and the Process
[Immerse your students in a lesson based on discovery! Students engage in conversations around the history of the American Constitution and its amendments. Lesson begins with a challenging vocabulary definition competition rooted in terms within and around the Constitution. Next, lead your students in a quick mini-lecture on the amendment process and the history of our amendments. The remainder, and majority, of class time is spent analyzing the 27 amendments of the United States Constitution. Three PDF forms are within the zipped file - 1) a list of the current 27 amendments; 2) a questionnaire that guides students through the analysis of the amendments; 3) and finally a "create your own amendment" PDF handout that works on professional writing and proposals! Lesson end with an Exit Card designed around student choice! Empower your students!]
