Does anyone have a lesson plan for Constitution Day? My district requires this day to be recognized. Thank you for any help you can provide.

I've done several things but the ones the kids enjoy the most is taking the Citizenship Test found on msnbc. There are some great videos on Discovery Channel's United Streaming if your district subscribes to that. You can also give them the Preamble and have them discuss its meaning as well as use a thesaurus to find synonyms for unfamiliar words. Also--Mailbox 2005-06 has some activities like a constitutional scavenger hunt.

I put together some links with lesson plans for Constitution Day. I have not had time to check this year to make certain they are all active, but it might give you some ideas.

I appreciate the ideas. We often plan together as a staff so this will give me some great ideas to share.

School House Rock has a DVD that we use each year and the kids enjoy it.
