About This Lesson

What does the Fourth Amendment say? When does the Fourth Amendment allow the government to search you or to seize your property? When is a government’s search or seizure “reasonable”? Why did the framers put the Fourth Amendment in the Bill of Rights?

Most Americans are unaware about when and where Fourth Amendment rights are at issue. This lesson will allow students to examine the text and interpretations of the Fourth Amendment to describe key terms and ideas like searches, seizures, and privacy, as well as define some of the key debates about where the Fourth Amendment is headed in an age of technology.
