Constitution Day!



Today is Constitution Day!  Did you know that according to the Consolidated Appropriations Act, “all publicly funded educational institutions [must] provide educational programming on the history of the American Constitution on [this] day.”  I had no idea!  But clearly somebody on our curriculum team did, because they created a Theme Page within DE streaming focusing specifically on Constitution Day!  To get to it via that link, you may need to log in first and then click on the link.  Or you can find it just by doing a search for Constitution and it will come right to the top.  There’s videos, lesson plans, articles and much more, all to help you fulfill your civic duty.

How are you celebrating Constitution Day in your school?

    Yes, we celebrated in my 2nd grade classroom. First we did a KWL, to find out what students already knew about the constitution. Then we watched a short video from United Streaming, TLC Kids Understanding government, which they really made connections too. We connected how we built our classroom rules similiar to our founding fathers. We followed up by reading about the constitution and important events on a timeline in our Scholastic News.
