Here’s another fact from the book Kidchat: American Adventure!to consider and discuss about the good ‘ole US of A…
“The Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787, but did not go into effect until the first Wednesday in March 1789 (if had to first be retified by at least nine states). The first ten amendments, known as the Bill of Rights, were ratified in 1791, safeguarding our individual rights.”
Discuss amoungst yourselves:
*If you could add one more right to the Bill of Rights, what would you add?
*If you could write a “Family Bill of Rights” for the members of your family, what ten rights would the bill include? (I LOVElovelove this one!)
*If you could guarantee that one ITEM you own would always be protected (never break, wear out, get lost, or be stolen) for which item would you want protection guaranteed?
We’re doing our family Bill of Rights sometime this week, but Golfer and Sassy already claimed protection over the Nintendo Wii and DS, respectively. Naturalist is still thinking about it. And me? It’s a toss up between my ipod or Macbook.
