Depends on what grade you're looking for. I teach an entire 6 week unit on the Constitution, so on Constitution day we usually just read the preamble, my 7th graders "translate" it into kid-friendly language, and then they illustrate a phrase from it. I save the heavy duty stuff for my unit.

I have to concur with MrsB. above...I also do an entire unit on the Constitution later on in the year, so what I do on Constitution Day is a "sneak peak" on what we will do.

I usually do the School House Rocks - Preamble song, then a short quiz or two on their rights and them compare their class to my other classes to see which class does the best.

Here are some links that I have in my bookmarks that I've acquired over the years that may help you:
