PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Constitution

Constitution Day Lesson and Activity for grades 8 through 10
Constitution Day is September 17th!

Many states in the U.S. require that teachers (especially Social Studies teachers) stop whatever they are doing on September 17th to discuss the Constitution!

This lesson and activity has students discuss Constitutional issues in small, cooperative groups and in a whole-group setting.

Included in this product:
• Constitution Day cover page
• Constitution Day Historical Background
• Do Now/Motivation Question
• Constitutional Issues Activity: students will read, discuss, and answer questions discussing constitutional issues and then determine what Constitutional Amendment pertains to that issue
• Constitutional Amendments 1-27
• Six Constitutional Issues with scaffolding questions {six documents; one per issue}
• Application/Closing/Higher-Order Thinking Question
• Lesson Plan
• Suggested Discussion Topics for Teachers


★★ NOTE --> This lesson is suited for 8th to 10th graders. I have not executed this lesson with my students younger than 8th grade because of some sensitive issues. However, that is up to your discretion.
