SAVE THE BILL OF RIGHTS!
iWS has developed an activity for the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia centered around the Bill of Rights. Created for a target audience of 5th to 8th graders, the activity combines fun with a look at what the Bill of Rights means in the world they see around them. To ensure a balance of fun and education, iWS brought in a respected education consultant and a pair of TV comedy writers to work with our team.
You can play the activity here. (Flash 5 or above is required)
