Yavneh Seventh Graders Present Bill of Rights Fair

Yavneh Academy seventh grade students have been hard at work preparing presentations for the 2024 Bill of Rights Fair. In the bustling halls of the Yavneh Middle School, students were transformed into pint-sized attorneys, researching Supreme Court case precedents, crafting arguments, and collating data. Our budding legal scholars, collaborated in groups of three or four to create three-panel boards featuring multiple elements, including individual and group “legal briefs,’’curated multimedia, infographics, and a cartoon strip. To create the cartoon strip, students used Book Creator or Canva to storyboard their clients’ scenarios. As they geared up to present, room 502 echoed with impassioned debates over the “original intent” and ongoing judicial interpretation of these amendments to our Constitution. Who knew that the Bill of Rights Fair could become a platform for the next generation of legal maestros?
