What's really in the Constitution of the United States? Do you know? Well, the Bill of Rights Institute is challenging everyone on Friday to a Constitution knowledge duel.
Individuals will be asked 15 multiple-choice questions from four categories: the Constitution, primary source documents, landmark Supreme Court cases, and historic people. Take the quiz as an individual, or as a team - even challenge another classroom, family, or workplace to a Constitution knowledge duel!
Also new for this Constitution Day, the Institute created a short video on the constitutional principle of representative government to help explore the key differences between republics and democracies. The Institute is encouraging educators and students to get involved Friday.
Additional activities include Life Without the Bill of Rights? which explores how life would change without our constitutionally-protected rights and Madison’s Notes are Missing, which allows you to “travel through time” to converse with the Founders and report on the Constitutional Convention.
The Bill of Rights Institute is partnering with the National Constitution Center to provide resources for Constitution Day. Tune in to Constitution Hall Pass, a free webcast which allows teachers and students to learn more about this historic day while chatting live with the National Constitution Center’s education staff. This year’s episode, Constitution Hall Pass: Freedom of Expression, brings the story of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights to life. The episode will be available on the Center’s website on Friday, with a live chat from 4 a.m. to 3 p.m.
