September 17 is Constitution Day. Did you know that if you are a public school educator then you are required by law to touch on the Constitution in your classroom? The act states..
"all publicly funded educational institutions provide educational programming on the history of the American Constitution on that day.".
So, with that said, I have put together an easy print and go poster that is a perfect way to help your students understand how the Constitution came about and how it affects our country today. Because I have highlighted vocabulary, this would be a great time to discuss some of the government related terms. For example, delegates, Articles of Confederation, and branches of government. If you wanted to elaborate further on the Constitution, you could then do a follow-up activity or maybe show a Brainpop or other video, or maybe even do a writing activity. Have fun sharing with your students this very important document. Get all of the details by clicking the link below.
