Learning Objective

Students will learn what Constitution Day is and why we celebrate. They also will reflect on the rights and responsibilities of what it means to be a U.S. citizen.


Use this easy-to-use resource to help teach your students about Constitution Day! On September 17, 1787, the Founding Fathers signed the U.S. Constitution. For over 225 years, the Constitution has served as the supreme law of the land. The Constitution, along with the Bill of Rights and other amendments, defines our government and guarantees our rights. Each year, on September 17, Americans celebrate Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. In addition, The week of September 17 is also recognized as Constitution Week. During this time, Americans are asked to reflect on the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and what it means to be a U.S. citizen.

This is an informational resource which provides basic information, what the day stands for and why we should celebrate it. **The US Department of Education is responsible for implementing Constitution Day legislated mandates. Among these is the requirement for educational institutions that receive federal funds to hold an educational program on the United States Constitution on September 17 each year.**

NOTE: Appropriate for 3rd - 6th grades but be sure to take a look at the preview to see if the activities are appropriate for the level of students you teach.
