Celebrate Bill of Rights Day - Free Resources!

Did you know that National Contitution Day is coming up on December 15th?  If you're a teacher, rest assured that the National Constitution Center in historic Philadelphia, PA has all the resources you need to commemorate the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution!  Check out the free resources and lesson plans in today's blog post.

All of the lesson plans and resources below are free resources provided by the National Constitution Center - a popular student group destination for groups traveling to Philadelphia.  

Lesson plans:

  • The Bill of Rights lesson provides students with information about one of our nation’s most important documents. In this lesson, students in grades 3-5 or grades 6-8 learn about the specific rights and freedoms protected by the Bill of Rights.

  • Use the First Amendment Plan of Study to explore every part of the First Amendment, including why all of the clauses were grouped together in the first place. Structured as a two-week plan, or as individual lessons, this plan of study also includes lessons on civil dialogue and discussion questions to spark conversation in your classroom.


Let us know how you celebrate Bill of Rights Day in your classroom!
