    the constitution is the document which sets up the federal government and lays out who has what powers and does what jobs. The constitution can only be changed by amendments, and the first ten amendments, added in 1791, four years after the Constitution was created, were the Bill of Rights, which cover individual rights, the rights of the accused, the rights of the convicted, and further deliniates who has what powers.

    The Constitution is the law of this land setting forth how our federal government will run. The Bill of Rights are the first ten amanendments (adopted by States as a group) which give us our basic rights (17 amendments came later but not included in the bill of rights)

    Do you have an essay to write? The bill of rights is part of the constitution (first 10 amendments). Read the constitution and it should all be very clear to you.

    Although the Bill of Rights and the Constitution are both law, and the Bill of Rights are the first ten amendments to the constitution, the bill of rights is like a "declaration", such as the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution is a structural outline, in one detail or another, of how the government is made to work. The Bill or Rights are statements, or declarations, of who has what rights, whereas the Constitution specifically addresses the structural format of how our federal government is to work. I hope you can understand my explanation. It makes perfect sense to me, but sometimes I don't express myself well. God Bless you.

    The Bill Of Rights is made up of the first ten Ammendments, or additions, to the Constitution. Technically, the Bill of Rights is part of the Constitution.

    The Bill of rights is part of the Constitution. It was added by a group called the Federalists to appease those who did not support the signing of the Constitution into law called the anti-Federalists.
