I am looking for a short read aloud book to use with a 5th grade class to introduce a unit about the Constitution. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Two books that I have read with my class are : Shh! we’re writing the Constitution, and We The Kids. The first one is on the longer side and I have read it in short chunks. The second one is very short and specifically addresses the preamble.

I really like Shhh! We're Writing the Constitution. Lots of good information, and it adds a human interest layer that makes it all come alive.

Jean Fritz's books are excellent--not just the Shhh! one.

If you choose that book, there’s a teacher on tpt whose stuff I’ve used. She has material to go with the book. She is also a PT member. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/...ts-Quiz-331045
