This mini-unit is perfect for CONSTITUTION DAY or it can be used during the year while teaching the US Constitution. It's a fun way to get the students to really understand the importance of the Constitution, while allowing them to go through the process of creating their own.
Included in this unit:
*I CAN statement - ready to be printed and posted
*Anticipation Guide -- blank for students, additional one with key for checking
*Vocabulary words for a word wall -- just print and cut
*Handout with facts --Why do we celebrate CONSTITUTION DAY?
*Preamble to the Constitution for hanging up in the classroom
*Guided worksheet -- What do the words of the Preamble actually mean? (key included)
*Graphic organizer for students to brainstorm ideas for their classroom constitution (expectations of students, teacher, and principal)
*Finished, typed sample of a classroom constitution on decorative scroll paper where you can type in the grade level, school name, and school year
*Blank decorative scroll paper where you can start from scratch and create your own wording for your classroom constitution--simply type in the highlighted text box
*Helpful hints for the teacher for some added enrichment in the unit
This unit can be used for both younger students (third grade) and intermediate students (sixth grade). The best part is to laminate the finished product and hang it in the classroom to be viewed throughout the year.
