A Trip Around the World
Students learn about the rights and responsibilities held by citizens in several countries around the world and compare them to the rights held by U.S. citizens. Note: This lesson contains an optional PowerPoint presentation (see Lesson Prep). We've recently updated this lesson!
Students will be able to...
- Compare and contrast key provisions in the U.S. Constitution with those in the constitutions of India, Brazil, Iran, Germany, and Ghana.
- Analyze how other countries' constitutions might affect everyday life and rights in those countries.
- Consider whether the U.S. Constitution should be amended to include certain provisions found in other countries' constitutions.
