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.

    Remember taking a Constitution quiz at WP, I guess, anyways as the expert writer at paper writing website I could answer who was the father and who signed and what word isn’t in there and STILL have no idea what the Constitution is about. These are about the stupidest questions I have ever read. Have you ever heard of CONTEXT and CONTENT? The US Constitution was a republican anti- monarchy document that followed the lines of Les Droits de l’homme and was followed by Ley Juarez of 1857. It was not particularly unique, since most countries were fed up with royalty and colonialism. Who signed what is drearily irrelevant. Did you ever figure out what it is ABOUT?
