    Description of the Bill of Rights Sort-Trade-Sort Game:

    Students will review the rights contained in the Bill of Rights. They will work cooperatively to locate examples of the rights needed to complete the “Brilliant Bill of Rights Game Board.” I chose rights that are most applicable to 4th-7th grade students: Amendments 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 8.

    Contents of Bill of Rights - How Important Are Our Rights?:

    Page 3: Letter to Students from Planet Montack- asks for help in choosing the five most important rights from the U.S. Bill of Rights

    Page 4: Cooperative Group Checklist: Lists steps to complete the activity

    Pages 5-9: Rights Cards: Gives ten rights in kid-friendly language- one right per card

    Page 10: Rights Checklist #1- Students indicate the order of importance they chose for the rights

    Pages 11-12: That Right Is Not Important…Think Again!

    Each right is listed along with what could happen if that

    right did not exist in the United States

    Page 13: We’ve Changed Our Minds!- After reading and discussing “That Right is Not Important…Think Again!”, students will probably need to change the order of importance for their rights. Students often do not realize how much their life would change without one right or another!

    Page 14: Bill of Rights for the Citizens of Montack- Students write the five rights they determined were most important.

    Pages 15-20: Bill of Rights Mini-Book: Each right is

    listed on one page, in kid-friendly language. Students

    will write why each right is important to them and make a

    pictorial representation of the right.
