Comparing the Founding Documents

Seventh graders work in groups with copies of the Bill of Rights to determine which rights they feel are the most important. They use copies of the Magna Carta to determine if the rights they chose are in this document. Students repeat the exercise with the Ohio Constitution and a list of grievances from the Declaration of Independence.
