Some ideas
Old 08-19-2007, 06:53 AM
 

1. Have the kids learn and recite the Preamble to the Constitution as the opening to the program.

2. Divide your class into 4 groups. Have each group create a poster that focuses on one part of the Constitution: Legislative, Excecutive, Judical, and include either founding fathers or Bill of Rights. ( to decorate the area along with national and state flags.

3. Instead of posters (see #2) do the same with power points to share.
4. Create a living history musesum. Have 5 or 6 students "become" founding fathers or other people from the time preiod to talk about their roles or how they feel about the Constitution.
5. Have the kids write their own classroom "Constitution" based on the preamble.
I hope these help,
Good Luck.
