Do you know what you're doing yet to teach your students about Constitution Day? Last year, in second grade, I taught my students all about the Preamble to the United States Constitution. First, we read this book:
We the Kids:
The Preamble to the Constitution of the United States
Then, they worked collaboratively to illustrate a page in our class book. It came out so cute! If I do it this year, I will write "Illustrated by Ms. Rosenberg's Class". After all, my students didn't write the words! I realized that after the children worked so hard to decorate the cover and didn't have the heart to ask them redo it!
This year, in first grade, after I teach my students about what the Pledge of Allegiance really means, they will complete this cute cut and paste lift the flap activity, to help them remember the definitions of the real words.
You can do this activity, too! Just click on the image above to download it. If you like it, please let me know! Thanks!
What are you doing this year for Constitution Day?
