Teachers and caregivers: register your elementary students for a webinar presentation of The First Amendment: Five Rights in One with the National Archives!

Students will explore the First Amendment freedoms from the Bill of Rights in this interactive and engaging civics program based on historical primary sources from the National Archives. Students will learn about the importance of First Amendment rights, identify examples in photographs and short written documents, and discover how to exercise those freedoms.

After registering, you will receive the Zoom connection information via email the week of the event. Participants’ cameras and microphones will be off and participant comments will be shared only with presenters to ensure a student-friendly environment. Registration will close the morning of the event.
