I would use this as a handout for teaching my elementary students about the Bill of Rights. I like how the amendments are condensed and easy to understand. I also think the amendments are very important for young students to be learning about seeing as though these are the rights they have as American citizens.

This is a shorter and much simpler version of the bill of rights. The bill gives the good people of America their individual freedoms. The Bill of rights is apart of the US constitution.

Nifty hand trick to remember the bill of rights. Great ideas (but I will include at least one other hand trick video, because he skips over at least one).
