Make Your Voice Count: Learning About the First Amendment (Grades K–2)

National Archives Museum

Friday, March 15, 2024 - 12:15 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. CDT

Join the National Archives for Civic Learning Week!

During this interactive civics program, students will explore the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights using primary historical sources to learn about the importance of rights and how to exercise their 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 24 hours before each event.

This program is a part of Civics for All of US, the national civic education initiative from the National Archives. Our interactive distance learning programs draw upon the vast holdings of the National Archives to promote the knowledge, skills, and dispositions students need for civic engagement in the 21st century. Each program is led by one of our educators located at National Archives sites, the Center for Legislative Archives, and Presidential Libraries across the country. Check for more information, including how to request a program for groups of 10 or more students.
