Bill of Rights ID Lesson Plan
ID Lesson Plan on the Bill of Rights. Students will learn about the protections and rights that are found in the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution. They will create a Prezi Presentation that explains each amendment and creates a story that shows how that amendment protects our rights.
Example: Fifth Amendment: Due Process - Double Jeopardy.
