Product Description
This is a great way to get students to discuss individual rights in the United States!

I use this as an introduction to the Bill of Rights. Students are given a graphic organizer with 11 scenarios. Students respond to each scenario with their individual opinions on their organizer. After responses have been recorded, rich class discussions are led by the teacher. This is truly one of my favorite sections in my curriculum!

After the discussions, students are grouped and given the actual text to each of the first 10 amendments to the Constitution. They are to match each scenario with an amendment and asked to provide evidence from the primary source words to prove why they chose the amendment/scenario match. Their answers are recorded on the graphic organizer.

A PowerPoint presentation is then shown to match the scenario, amendment and evidence.

Depending on the length of discussion, this lesson can last two 55 minute periods.

This product contains a 2 page graphic organizer, with and answer key, and a 12 slide PowerPoint.

I hope you enjoy this product as much as my kids do!

Please let me know what you think.
