Lesson 1:   What is the Bill of Rights?


Big Ideas of the Lesson


  • The Bill of Rights is the first ten amendments to the Constitution. These amendments identify important individual rights.
  • The First Amendment guarantees freedom of expression which includes freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and freedom of assembly.
  • The First Amendment also guarantees freedom of religion.
  • Sometimes we have to put limits on rights. For example, freedom of speech does not allow you to yell “fire” in a crowded place when there is no fire.
  • Rights come with responsibilities.
