PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Bill of Rights- What a fun topic to teach and study!

This Common Core reading and social studies activity is interesting and thought-provoking for students. Students will work in a cooperative group to examine scenarios with realistic people. They will decide if the person's rights were respected, according to the Bill of Rights. Students are also asked to correlate the scenario to an Amendment in the Bill of Rights.

This packet contains:

* Lesson plan titled "Connecting the Bill of Rights to Everyday Life"

* "The Bill of Rights in Everyday Language"

* Cooperative group answer sheet

* 10 realistic scenario cards

* Answer Key

* I recently added a group activity called "Roll-A-Right". This activity facilitates review and discussion of rights. The only materials needed for this activity are number cubes (one per group) and the included printable sheet.

This activity is also contained in a bundle of 4 excellent Constitution & Bill of Rights products. Check it out here:
