The First Amendment is an integral part of the Bill of Rights and is mentioned almost everyday in some form or fashion. It guarantees us some of our most basic freedoms and your students will have fun coloring, collaborating, and discussing their thoughts on the amendment.
When your students enter the room they are each given a piece of the poster, which they will color on and eventually piece together with the rest of their classmates. Each piece of the poster has two different writing prompts. It is up to you how you want to use them. Sometimes I use both and other times I just use one.
Anytime we do these poster in class, my students get excited. They love to color and be able to express themselves artistically and I love the writing portion of the poster. Each hour when my students walk into the room they enjoy reading what the other classes have written. It is a very engaging piece of artwork that you can keep up all year long and reference frequently!
*Final Poster is 5x5, however there are extra pieces of the poster that can be printed off and placed around the border for classes that are larger than 25.
This is a great assignment for an introduction to the First Amendment or as a culminating project. of the year. If you like this one, check out my other Collaborative Posters too, or if you have a suggestion for a poster, please feel free to contact me.
