This is a PowerPoint Presentation that I prepared for my 4th grade students.
Protecting our Rights
After discussing all ten amendments the students had small group discussions. Students had four relevant scenarios and they had to explain which Amendment related to the scenarios. This was an awesome critical thinking activity. The handout for the scenarios is in the zipped file.
I also included a link to Bill of Rights Rap that I found on Youtube! Great Rap the kids love it after they've learned the words.
I live in GA. Below you will find the standard related to this lesson.

Rights places limits on the power of government, and explain the reasons for its
inclusion in the Constitution in 1791.
