[Essay Help]: Prepare a project on Constitutional Amendments

Prepare a project on Constitutional Amendments. The purpose of this project is to deepen your understanding of the Constitution and connect it to your everyday lives. Your task is to find 25 articles or examples in life that relate to part of the Constitution. You may use the entire Constitution, even the amendments. You may focus just on the amendments if you would like. However, these amendments have their basis in the Constitution, so you may find what you are looking for in the actual text. Only one article/example per topic. Also, the articles should be appropriate for your age. If you have to ask if it is appropriate, it is probably not.

You must then compile all of these articles or examples into a “book” or a single digital file. There should be one example on each page. You may cut out the article or example or take a screenshot of the article. If you take a screenshot make sure the web address is visible. At the top, state which part of the Constitution the article reflects. One the bottom, number your examples. Then you want to write a few sentences explaining the significance of the article and how it relates to the Constitution. To get the full credit you must demonstrate an understanding of the articles and concepts you are writing about. Plagiarized work will receive zero credit. See the examples below:

Article 1, Section 7, Clause 2 The Lawmaking Process
