Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To become familiar with Amendments 22-27 of the United States Constitution, including reasons for their enactment.

TIME:
1 class period

Since 1951, six amendments have been added to the United States Constitution.

Amendment 22 (limited presidents to two terms)
Amendment 23 (voting in the District of Columbia)
Amendment 24 (poll taxes, which some states had used to keep poor people and blacks from voting, were declared illegal)
Amendment 25 (disability of the President and succession)
Amendment 26 (lowered the voting age from 21 to 18)
Amendment 27 (salaries of the members of Congress)

Students begin this activity by reading Amendment 22, and then answer true/false questions that follow it. Class members continue in the same way with Amendments 23-27. The proposed and ratified dates for each amendment are included.

Next, there is a section with seven descriptions, one for each of the amendments the kids just read about. Students must decide which amendment to the United States Constitution is being described and fill in the space with 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, or 27.

The lesson concludes with a Thought Question to develop critical thinking skills. Class members are asked to choose three amendments between 22-27 that they believe were of greatest importance and explain their decisions.
