The Constitution

By: Alexis and Dariah

Why is it Relevant Today?

Even though the Constitution was written in 1787 in some ways it is still relevant today.

Those ways in which are partially because is it continually being reinterpreted and to form a government involving the people which allowed for separate powers and ensured the basic rights of life, liberty and property is still apart of how the constitution is relevant today.

First Amendment

"The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning .."

Basically it is still relevant today because we still have the freedom to practice our own religion and we still have freedom of speech. without those we wouldn't be able to say what we wanted. and express our gods and such.
