Bill of Rights Rap

The Bill of Rights Rap is a fun and memorable way for students to learn about the Constitution. The rap song was written by Barbara and Jim Bongard for Scholastic Instructor Magazine as a teaching tool to help students remember the first 10 Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, known as the Bill of Rights.

The Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence has partnered with the Oklahoma Bar Association to produce a Bill of Rights Rap video as a teaching resource for Oklahoma teachers. The video features students from Teresa Potter’s SEARCH Gifted and Talented class at Fisher Elementary School in Moore.

“Songs are a great teaching tool and help students learn and retain concepts that they might otherwise forget,” said Emily Stratton, executive director of the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence.  “We hope the Bill of Rights Rap will become a shared learning experience for young Oklahomans to help them understand the importance of the Constitution in our daily lives.”
