This Rights in Early America lesson plan also includes:
Get your historians to hop into someone else's 18th century shoes with a simulation on rights in early America. Each individual gets an identity card, indicating their race, gender, and status (slave or free). Areas around the room are labeled ALWAYS, NEVER, and SOMETIMES, and as you read different rights, they move around the room. The opportunity to quickly correct those in the wrong spot offers many teachable moments and talking points during this kinesthetic activity.
