Magna Carta: Cornerstone of the U.S. Constitution

Students use the Internet to read a brief description of Magna Carta (link provided). They "walk through" the document with the teacher, identifying four major themes. Students read and discuss "The Rhetoric of Rights: Americans are 'Englishmen' and Englishmen Have Constitutional Rights." They complete a chart comparing/contrasting the Magna Carta, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.

Lesson Planet has helped me find many ideas for supplementing the curriculum that is provided to me by my school district. I have found many creative, hands-on activities that make my science curriculum "pop".
