Know your rights!
Right or Wrong! is a three part game based unit that helps students identify the civil rights of all Americans written into The Bill of Rights of the US Constitution - and their real world meaning and application. Simply put, Right or Wrong uses classic card game dynamics - like matching cards from memory - to encourage students to know their constitutional rights.
So think the classic card game Memory plus The Bill of Rights - and yes it is as fun as it sounds!
Beyond the fun factor - however - besides the game play - students will be charged with rewording and illustrating the meaning of each of The Bill of Rights to prepare for a constitutional quiz.
In other words - by design - Right or Wrong! propels the teaching and the learning in this unit, but it does not replace the teaching and the learning in this unit.
And by the end of the unit - students will know their constitutional rights - and why they matter.
