Gun Control | Gun Rights **NEWLY UPDATED**

Gun Control | Gun Rights **NEWLY UPDATED**

A challenging topic, but one that needed to be discussed in my class. The worksheets cover both sides of the debate about gun control and the right to bear arms, and students are encouraged to develop their own opinions. The worksheets created a lot of discussion by focussing on the slogans, the statistics and analyzing and rewording the Second Amendment. This pack includes 12 worksheets on different aspects of the topics and like all of my work, approaches the activities from a cross-curriculum point of view. So the activities include graphing tasks, language analysis, interpreting political cartoons and identifying arguments in a debate. There is also an answer key at the end of the pack, with possible responses to all debating points and** mistypes have been corrected in this updated version.**
