Did you know that December 15th marks the 227th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights? The National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, PA has put together a few easy ways teachers can integrate the Bill of Rights in their lesson planning this week - including pdf resources, vidoes, and some pretty creative lesson plan ideas (Bill of Rights BINGO, anyone?)
The National Constitution Center is celebrating the 227th anniversary in style - offering visitors and educators the following resources:
Use the Bill of Rights lesson plan to help students understand the rights enshrined in the first ten amendments of the U.S. Constitution. Explore the relationship between our three founding documents-- the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights-- with this lesson plan.
Play Bill of Rights Bingo to introduce important vocabulary words, people, and dates surrounding the document.
Watch The Bill of Rights or The Bill of Rights (Second Edition) videos from the Constitution Hall Pass series. Each video includes key points to think about while watching and additional resources to explore afterwards.
Send your Bill of Rights related questions to National Constitution Center educators with our online chats starting Monday, December 10, and running through Friday, December 14, from 7a.m. to 5 p.m. EST daily. Click here to learn more.
