The Big Ideas Found in the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights

One of the most important ideas in our United States Constitution is that all people need to be treated fairly, regardless of what race they are, whether they are a boy or girl, how much money they have, or how smart they are.

  • What does it mean to you be treated fairly?
  • What does it mean to be fair in the classroom?
  • What does it mean to be fair on the playground?
  • How does your school try to make sure everyone is treated fairly?
  • What are some examples of people being treated fairly?
  • What are some examples of people being treated unfairly?
  • What can you do to make sure people are treated fairly?
  • Who are some people who make sure people get treated fairly?
