Teachers can access free educational materials from the Bill of Rights Institute in connection with Constitution Day, which is Friday.

"Life Without the Bill of Rights?" is a click-and-explore activity that asks students to consider how life would change without the Bill of Rights. Other free resources include an interactive module that allows students to "travel through time" to converse with the nation's founders and report on the Constitutional Convention. Students also can match quotes to founders who said them and complete a constitutional crossword puzzle.

Available for download is a 12-page "Celebrate the Constitution: Why Do We Have a Constitution?" activity booklet. The free booklet features interactive games and content that informs readers about constitutional principles such as freedom of speech, federalism, how a bill becomes a law and the history behind the Constitution and Constitutional Convention.

All materials and other free resources can be found at billofrightsinstitute.org/conday.
