The National Constitution Center in Philadelphia provides this fun, free game that helps students learn about the Bill of Rights. The premise is that the "National Computer" has crashed and deleted parts of the Bill of Rights! Your mission is to navigate through a map of a community called Freeville and identify the rights being used there to restore the document to its original content.
When you get to the site you will see a message that the computer has crashed. Click "Start" and the game map opens. Click on the landmarks to see a picture that depicts one of the 8 missing rights. Then, answer a multiple choice question to identify the missing right and help restore the document. A correct answer adds the text back into the Bill of Rights that you'll see displayed on the right hand side of the screen.
If this game sparks interest in the U.S. Constitution, don't miss exploring the "Interactive Constitution" housed at the National Constitution Center Museum to learn more.
