Bill of Rights Posters

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 10 pages | Grades: 3 - 6

Describe the concepts related to the first ten amendments of the United States Constitution.

Do Your Students Know Their Constitutional Rights?

Use this set of informational posters to support your American History and government lessons.

Teaching government to young learners is a difficult task. The concept is abstract, and the language is difficult to understand. These informational posters provide a display that explains the Bill of Rights for kids.

As students view, read, and interpret the first ten amendments of the Constitution, they will gain a better understanding of each amendment and the rights that it provides to American citizens.

When paired with direct instruction, nonfiction texts, or video lessons, students will demonstrate an ability to read and comprehend history and social studies texts independently and proficiently. 

How to Make the Most of Your Bill of Rights Posters 

  1. Print the posters on letter-size paper and display them in your classroom for a daily reminder of their importance. 
  2. Print the posters at a reduced scale (4 per sheet) and have students insert them into their Social Studies interactive notebooks or learning binders. 
  3. Print the poster on letter-size paper, slide it into a clear sleeve, and hang it on a ring as a reference tool for a learning center. 

We’ve also come up with bonus ways to turn posters into interactive tools that really make your lessons stick!  

Create learning stations or centers

Place the posters around the room and have students work in groups to read and interpret the ten amendments.  

Student Reference Sheet

Place copies in students’ homework folders to reference at home.

Digital Reference

Upload posters on an online platform for your virtual students to access and use.

Test students’ memories

Cut the posters in half and ask your students to match each amendment to the correct explanation of the Constitutional right.
