This is a 36 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Establishing the US Government – The Amendments Simplified. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The writers of the Constitution knew they needed to create a document that was flexible and that could be changed as the country grew. They built into the Constitution ways to amend the document while keeping the intent of the laws and freedoms of the citizens spelled out in the Constitution intact. The Constitution was so well written that there have been only 17 amendments to the document since its ratification in 1789 (the Bill of Rights were included as part of the ratification process).
The presentation contains three sections: the Bill of Rights and what they really mean for citizens, the Civil War amendments and all the remaining amendments.
The presentation covers the following:
Amendments to the Constitution
The Bill of Rights:
The Civil War Amendments
The Later Amendments:
