American Rights

As Americans we have 4 important rights:

1. Life

2. Liberty (enjoy freedom)

3. The pursuit of happiness (work towards goals)

4. Equality under the law (treated fairly by government)

Rules and Laws

We have rules and laws to keep us safe, protect our property, and make things fair.

Rules can be made by a community, parents, or even kids! (Example- Keep your hands and feet to yourself)

Laws are created by the government. (Example- When driving, stop at red traffic lights.)

Purpose of Government

2. The Government carries out laws

3. The Government enforces laws (decides if laws have been broken)

1. Volunteer

2. Donate

3. Community projects

In our state:

2. Vote

In our country:

1. Serve as a government official

Diversity= Different

As Americans we celebrate the fact that people are different in many ways- age, ethnic origins, gender, language, religion

People enjoy different food, clothing, and music!
