Make Your Voice Count: Learning About the First Amendment (Grades K–2)

National Archives Museum

Thursday, December 15, 2022 - 11:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. EST


Teachers and caregivers: register your elementary students for a special webinar presentation of Making Your Voice Count: Learning About the First Amendment with the National Archives on Bill of Rights Day!

December 15 is designated as Bill of Rights Day to commemorate the ratification of the document on December 15, 1791.

During this interactive civics program, students will explore the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights using primary historical sources to learn about the importance of rights and how to exercise their freedoms.

This program is a part of Civics for All of US, the national civic education initiative from the National Archives. Our interactive distance learning programs draw upon the vast holdings of the National Archives to promote the knowledge, skills, and dispositions students need for civic engagement in the 21st century. Each program is led by one of our educators located at National Archives sites, the Center for Legislative Archives, and Presidential Libraries across the country. Check for more information, including how to request a program for groups of 10 or more students.
