Product Description
Constitution Preamble: How about discussing the US Constitution Preamble with your students. They may have read it during your history lessons, but do know what the words mean? This is a great way to get them talking. Your students will enjoy this fun "Constitution Preamble" word search!! If your students are like mine, they love these.

This is perfect to incorporate into your government studies or even use on Constitution Day.

In this Constitution Preamble themed puzzle, words are found forward, backward, up, down, and diagonal. I would consider it on the challenging side since students are looking for words in all directions, and the content may be more suitable for upper elementary.

I use word searches to introduce vocabulary, or even just give it as morning work. They are also great to glue in writing notebooks for future writing topics. Perfect for a sub, too. Have your students write about the meaning of the preamble. Have them define certain words. Maybe they could illustrate their thinking. Use this Constitution Preamble word search however you would like in your classroom.

NOTE: In the original writing of the preamble, a few words were written differently from how we might use or spell them today. I have included the ORIGINAL word spellings and capitalization use, but I have explained them under the preamble. ex. defense is spelled defence, which is a British spelling. Insure is used in a manner where we would most likely use ensure today.
