I really like the short booklet that the students use for the Prezi creation.  Have you thought about having the students create their own booklet that illustrates each Amendment instead of using the pre created one?  This would allow them to become even more familiar with each Amendment.

Technical Remarks:

Have you thought about having the students do a screencast of their Prezi? This would allow them to post completed presentations (including the presentation) onto a blog or similar resource?

Your lesson seems to be very interesting and fun. Thinking about telling a funny story to begin the class sounds very attractive in order to capture student’s attention. I consider this lesson, considering the objectives, will be totally pertinent for your audience. In terms of UDL, I think you have a good variety of strategies to be able to deliver the content, such as, lectures, discussions, cooperative learning, short stories, and a hands-on activity. The hands-on activity (Prezi) will allow you to eventually have students discussing more about the topic from their own perspectives. Great Job!
