This Constitution bundle is designed to simplify your Constitution unit and give you the resources you need to be successful. All of these materials were things I used with my students for three years during a one-month Constitution unit with 7th grade students. I remember feeling overwhelmed when I first realized I had to start from scratch, but I am happy with what I put together, and hope it helps you! All files are 100% editable so you can add any additional information that your state or district requires or change things as you wish.
What is included?
There are five things included in this bundle:
Constitution slideshow: The slideshow consists of 30 slides about the seven articles of the Constitution and the three branches of government
Guided Note Handout for Students: This can be provided to students as you go through the slideshow with them. There are blanks that they can fill out as they listen.
Master Copy of Notes: Use this complete document of the slideshow to support SPED students or absent students.
Constitution Study Guide: This document was used as a review tool to help students review for the test.
Constitution Test (two versions): This document is what I gave my students as the Constitution test. However, I did remove questions that were specific to our state constitution (as it will vary for each state), as well as questions related to specific people who were in office (as that changes frequently). You may wish to add those details to the test. One version of the test contains questions about the amendments and one does not. There is not information included in this bundle about Amendments, so you can decide which version of the test you would like to use. Both versions contain an Answer Key.
What is Not included?
For full transparency, here are things that are not included in this bundle:
Information regarding current political leaders
Information about State Constitutions
Amendments slideshow (I used a variety of resources I found online and modified them a bit, so therefore I am not able to include them in this bundle.)
