Monday Freebie - Bill of Rights Resources

Classroom Freebies Manic Monday
For the last four years my methods class in science and social studies has been team taught with an amazing social studies specialist from a local school division. This semester the class has returned solely to me, and I'll admit to being a bit nervous about it. So, I've been spending a lot of time brushing up on content and pedagogy for elementary social studies.

Since Constitution Day is just a few short weeks away, today I'm sharing a packet of resources on the Bill of Rights. In this packet you'll find a series of notebook pages for students to illustrate each amendment and write about them in their own words. You will also find a cut and paste activity where students sort rights and protections into the categories of individual freedoms, rights of the accused, and protection from government. Finally, you'll find a few suggestions for web sites and children's book that may be helpful.

Here's what the pages look like.

I hope you get a chance to use these resources in your home or classroom. Please let me know if you try them and how they work!
