This is a bundle of 3 presentations on the Bill of Rights. The bundle includes a stand-alone, highly animated, 13 slide power point presentation on the Bill of Rights – Know Your Rights and a Student Study Guide with a Guided Notes Activity Worksheet and an Answer Key for the teacher.
The power point presentation is a 13 slide, highly animated, colorful power point presentation on the Bill of Rights, the first 10 amendments to the United States Constitution. Each of the amendments are highlighted with explanation of each amendment and each slide is editable so you can customize as you see fit.
The U. S. Constitution document was signed on September 17, 1787, but still had to be ratified 9 of the 13 states. By December 7, 1787, DE, PA, NJ, GA and CT were the first 5 to sign. Several states expressed concerns that the document did not provide enough individual protections, those states included MD, SC and most notable; MA
In February 1788, a comprise was reached that would add amendments to satisfy MA. Satisfied, MD, SC and MA all ratified the document as amended, bringing the total to 8 states who had signed. In June 1788, NH became the 9th state to ratify, insuring adoption! In June, VA and NY ratified.
The Bill of Rights then, was introduced to Congress in 1789 and adopted on December 15, 1791, and included the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution.
The Student Study Guide, Guided Notes Activity Worksheet and the Teacher Answer Key accompanies the Florida Students educational resources tutorial: Know Your Rights: Exploring the Bill of Rights.
Complies with Florida Civics Benchmark: SS.7.C.2.4. Evaluate rights contained the Bill of Rights and other amendments to the Constitution.
I have created a student’s study guide with guided notes activity worksheet to accompany the Florida Students educational resources tutorial: Know Your Right: Exploring the Bill of Rights. If you do not have a computer for each student, you are able to present the tutorial class activity completing each activity as you progress through the tutorial. If you have a smartboard, students can complete the activity at their seat, individually or with partners, and then come to the smartboard to present the answer. If you have computers or a laptop for each student, students can complete the tutorial and add answers as they progress through the tutorial at their own pace.
This is one of many bundled presentations I offer in my store under the heading....Establishing the US Government.
