In fourth grade, one of the things we cover in Social Studies is the Bill of Rights. Specifically they need to know what the 1st, 2nd, 6th, and 8th amendment say and what freedoms they protect. One of the activities my students do during this unit, is to make a poster to explain the amendments. What I do is split the class into groups and assign an amendment to each group. I split the first amendment into 3 different groups. Below are some of the poster my students came up with. After my students create the posters, they present the poster to the class. My students really like this activity and it really helps them remember the different amendments.
Instructions: Poster must include-
What the amendment is.
What right that amendment gives.
(Use all of the poster board, not just a small portion.)
Friday we celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday by having an all day read day, dressing up as our favorite book characters, and having guest readers read Dr. Seuss books to our classes. My kids always surprise me with their creativeness on their costumes. I wanted to share some of the awesome costumes we had this year!
This is Nancy Ward, Hiccup (from How to Train Your Dragon), and Clark Kent/Superman.
