A copy of the U.S. Constitution is not included in this product. You will want to use the Constitution found in your textbook or another source. This "Constitution Scavenger Hunt" product can be used for studying just the Articles, Amendments, or the entire document for a full overview. Each year, this method proves to be one of the best ways for my students to comprehend the information and layout of the U.S. Constitution. In addition, I also like to use Constitution: The Articles, Primary Source
in my unit on the Constitution. Enjoy, and thank you so much for your comments and ratings!
