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.
Explanation: a procedural defence that forbids a defendant from being tried again on the same charges following a legitimate acquittal or conviction.
Story: Robert is accussed of stealing a car but when he goes to trial, he found not guilty of grand theft auto. A day later, a video surfaces that shows that Robert actually did steal the car. As a result of Double Jeopardy found in fifth amendment, Robert cannot be charged again for that same crime.
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.
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!
