In this lesson your students will …

  • explore the Constitutional amendment process
  • learn about three amendments that were not ratified
  • simulate a state-level ratification process

The lesson can fit into a in a variety of courses, including government, law, civics, or history. Plus, it’s adaptable so that middle and high school teachers alike can put it to use.

It is short in length and straightforward, and, of course, it is interactive and student-centered, staying true to the Street Law approach.
