This project has everything your students need to know about the freedoms contained in the Bill of Rights!

The resource includes a PowerPoint that presents each amendment in the Bill of Rights in student-friendly terms. After explaining both the structure and the purposes of the Bill of Rights, the presentation leads students through all ten amendments, allowing multiple opportunities for teachers to provide real-life examples. Each slides includes teacher notes.

The PowerPoint is paired with a graphic organizer that allows students to write down the main ideas behind each amendment. Once the presentation is complete, viola! Students have a user-friendly reference sheet.

Students will then use the reference sheet (and any other resources that might be provided by the instructor) to construct a poster based on the Bill of Rights. The guidelines lead students through step-by-step.

Finally, the resource includes a project rubric for teachers to assess completed posters. These rubrics can be distributed to the students ahead of time to use as a "checklist" and ensure that their work meets standards.

For distance-learning purposes, the resource includes examples of how students can complete their project using Google Slides.

For those students averse to drawing, the PowerPoint includes two alternate assessments.

I have used this project for years with my own students. We have a blast with the presentation and examples, and their completed posters are the star of my Open House! I know you will love it, too!

The PowerPoint is saved in Office 97-2003. The graphic organizer, guidelines, and rubric have been uploaded as PDF files.
