Product Description
Fulfill your requirement to explore Constitution Day and practice an important reading strategy at the same time. Students will practice paraphrasing using the enclosed 4 page template and an easy to read bookmark outlining the strategy. Students may work individually, in pairs or in small groups. This activity is great to include special education students and will help your ESL students understand the wording of the Preamble more completely. Your class will have fun exploring the government archives internet website to look at the original parchment copy of the Constitution and using YouTube to rediscover that famous School House Rock tune “We the People” that helped millions to remember those famous words. YouTube blocked at your school? No problem. Go to the official School House Rock website instead. Students can use the electronic template to complete the activity via computer by typing their paraphrase into Microsoft Word or print it out to complete by hand. Pick up some much needed dictionary skills along the way as students take a look at synonyms to help with the paraphrase. At the close of the lesson students will proudly display their parchment look-a-like poster creation documenting their mastery of the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution. Great activity for ESL, Special Education, and Homeschool. Great for varied ages and ability levels. Students will use the bookmarks again and again. Allow at least two 45 minute class periods. If you choose to do all activities the complete lesson plan will take up to three 45 minute periods. Younger students will take longer. You can cut the time needed by allowing a specified number of minutes for the paraphrase and for the poster activity or by pre-teaching the paraphrasing reading strategy. Contains Writing, ELA, and Social Studies content.
