I am looking for activities for Constitution Day on Sept. 17. We are observing the day on Sept. 16. I teach LA/SS. I thought about rewriting the preamble in modern terms, but I am unsure if this what the purpose of the day is. Any help is welcome.

The is a Fantastic picture book that came out 2 years ago called The Constitution. The preamble is broken into phrases and illustrated to explain the meaning of the original language of the Constitution. It usually takes 2 45 minute segments for me to get through the book as I stop and discuss the illustrations and have the class re-phrase the wording. It's a staple in my bag of tricks.

I'll be doing those lessons for grades 2-6 from my Computer Lab as well. I plan to use a website called "Ben's First Government for Kids."

http://bensguide.gpo.gov/index.html

My plans aren't complete but I think we will complete an Internet Treasure Hunt with the older students. The little ones will be harder for me simply because I don't have nearly as much experience with that age group.

I saw a news segment last week. A congressman became upset because Americans could not answer simple questions about our Constitution and how it came into existance. Most of what he was talking about I taught in 5th grade Social Studies, but we now have a mandate to teach lessons on the Constitution across the country on or around September 17.

I would love to have the ISBN for the picture book. I contact several book stores and they have several Constitution books.

That sounds like a great idea. I might try doing something using the SMARTboard using your website.
