Overview:

In this video, students learn about the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights was made to protect Americans from too many restrictions and regulations in addition to assuring our well-being under our government. For the past 200 years, it's done a pretty good job, but on occasion, it is seen as too protective or not protective enough. Our video examines some of the things the bill provides for, and also raises a point that is not often taught.
