HOW do you teach about the Constitution to your young PreK students?

I received this information in an email from our Social Studies "Lead Teacher".

Please inform teachers and staff that September 17, 2008 will be celebrated as Constitution Day! As you may know, Congress passed legislation that requires the implementation of an educational program pertaining to the United States Constitution on this day. All schools may determine what kind of educational programs are appropriate for their students.

the constitution ( show picture) is a list of rules that the people who live in this country choose to live by. Let's make a list of rules that the people who live in this room choose to live by. Make a short list and run off and roll them up and tie with a ribbon to take home and share. It is important that they make up the constitution for them room and you post it above the door. You can then point it to say we all agreed that we would not hit a friend etc.

I guess if I got that e-mail, I would assume that "kind of educational programs are appropriate for their children" would mean teaching children who are developmentally prepared to learn such a concept.
