These free Bill of Rights for kids coloring pages are perfect for kids in grades K-5.

Written by James Madison in 1789, there were originally 12 amendments. By the time it was ratified (approved) by Congress on December 15th, 1791 there were only 10. These 10 amendments are now called the Bill of Rights.

There are currently 27 amendments to the constitution (I will list the others below if you are interested.)

When the kids have colored these 10 in I highly recommend using them as Bill of Rights posters and hanging them on the wall. That is a great way for them to remember all 10 amendments.

I think you will also enjoy our free Bill of Rights word search with 17 important vocabulary words to learn and find.

These can be used along with our 13 free government worksheets, what is the …… judicial system, executive branch for example. Also, our free George Washington Worksheets are perfect for younger children. These George Washington activity sheets are great for lower elementary-aged children.
