The Bill of Rights


Most students do not realize that the Bill of Rights was not included in the original Constitution. Some states only ratified the Constitution based on a promise that this sort of document would be soon to follow. Do you think this might be possible today? Ratification of an entirely new form of government without the guarantees spelled out in the Bill of Rights?

We have included a transcript of the original document as well as questions and answers for students.

Please take a look at our US Government PowerPoints.
