PARSIPPANY — The final culmination of a unit exploring the United States Government resulted in Northvail’s fifth grade students having a better understanding of the reasons for having protective laws in society. They also learned how these laws are addressed in the U.S. Constitution. They were given the opportunity to analyze and explain the Bill of Rights and interpret the meaning of these first ten amendments. In their own words, illustrations and song the students recognized the significance of the Bill of Rights as well as how citizens are safeguarded by them. They also explored other institutions and features within the government.
