Does anyone have any good ideas for remembering 9/11 and/or celebrating constitution day?

constitution day

I had this thought--I am going to get the little battery operated candles like they use at Xmas time for each of the kids to use at their desks while we do a writing activity w/ the over head lights out--kinda like George Washington's era. In an OLD issue of Family FUn magazine (I save all the back issues) there are instructions for making quill pens. Thought I might do that, too. Practice writing our own constitution, maybe.

Scholastic has a Reader's Theater-type book that is for practicing fluency in the middle grades. There are several short skits that have to do with America, noble Americans, and general patriotism. I was thinking of having my kids perform a skit to parents.

The latest August/September issue of the Mailbox has a section on this. I also will read We The Kids

There is a Peanuts movie about the constitution out there that we watch; it's maybe 30 min. long.
