The First Amendment for Kids

Do we know our numbers? Check. Alphabet? Check. Constitutional amendments? Let's start with the First Amendment. This Saturday, we'll help kids exercise their rights as guaranteed by the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights. Kids might choose to illustrate signs about protecting endangered species; or create posters about conserving energy to reduce our impact on climate change; design a portable banner about equal pay for equal work; create flyers in support of religious freedom; invent a list of empowering chants, like "This is what Democracy looks like." Girls and boys don't have to attend the Women's March in New York or D.C. this Saturday to share their ideas. After negotiating with their parents, kids might display a sign in their bedroom window or on a bulletin board in their building; they might write letters to government officials articulating their opinions on policies and issues. In addition to crafting kids' various messages, we’ll also have fun reading fantastic new books together. Hosted by Yvonne Brooks. All ages welcome. Free.
