In this integrated civics and visual art lesson, students will review the Bill of Rights, and the historical background to its creation. Students will choose one of the five freedoms from the First Amendment. They will plan and sketch a historical work of art depicting one aspect of the events that inspired the inclusion of that freedom within the Bill of Rights.
The Purpose of the lesson is to teach the students about five major atomic theories using inquiry-based learning. By allowing the students to be introduced to the historical backgrounds and having each group to create a three dimensional figure and a poster, it allows the learning process to be student-driven, inductive and interactive.
