Looking for something quick, easy & fun that your kiddos can do on Constitution Day that they can wrap their brains around?
How ‘bout a patriotic number puzzle? It’s a great way to fulfill the “Do something related to the Constitution on September 17th” requirement.
Later, you can still use these puzzles for any other patriotic holidays that roll around.
I’ve included a variety of puzzles that count by 1s to 10, count backwards from 10 to 1, as well as skip count by 10s to 100.
Print, laminate & trim the full color ones and use as an independent center.
I’ve included portraits of some of the “Framers”, so when you discuss the men who worked on the Constitution, you can show them a picture puzzle that they can assemble.
I’ve also included black and white options, so that students can color and cut up their own puzzle.
Be sure and give them some background facts to go with the various puzzles, so that they can share this information when they get home.
For an interesting “craftivity” have students glue their puzzle to a sheet of red or blue construction paper. Remind them to leave a little bit of a gap between each numbered strip to create an especially cool mosaic effect.
For an awesome “Look what we did on Constitution Day” bulletin board, scatter completed projects on a white background, trimmed with a patriotic stars & stripes border.
Older students can complete a writing prompt on the back of their puzzle. Share then suspend from the ceiling.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a very happy Constitution Day, as well as any other patriotic holiday you celebrate with your kiddos.
