Middle School Social Studies
Students are bubbling through American history topics, having spent a chunk of December analyzing the debates between delegates at the Constitutional Convention of 1787. For January, we are going to dive deeper into the Constitution by looking at the seven articles within and then the Bill of Rights. I have some ideas rattling in brain of mini-mock trials or a simulations as a project for this unit, but I have not fully solidified how it will look. The short of it would be for the kids research and perhaps re-enact actual court cases where the rulings were decided by amendments within the Bill of Rights. If we can pull it off in the next couple of weeks, we’ll create some sort of interactive activity to coincide with the Curriculum Celebration on January 20th.
