Bill of Rights Day is next Thursday! This year marks the 220th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights in 1791. Bill of Rights Day has been a day of federal observance since 1941 – and the Bill of Rights Institute has a variety of fun and engaging activities to help your classroom celebrate this important anniversary.
You can study the Bill of Rights in a variety of ways, including integrating technology into the lesson plan. Available on SMART Exchange now is a new SMART Board activity, Fight For Ur Rights. Use with large or small groups, as a warm-up or refresher, on our government, rights, and liberties; it’s informative and fun, and is great for teaching the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Other Bill of Rights Day activities include signing the pledge to read the Bill of Rights on December 15th, ranking your rights, answering trivia questions, and taking a quiz about the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
