Thank you for looking into our Constitution Quest Activity!
In this lesson, students will go on a Constitution Quest to find answers about the Constitution, about American History which will lead to a better understanding of the Constitution. This is a great activity for kids to work together on, or they may do this independently. Students will need access to the web for this lesson. There are 5 parts in this quest (Parts A through E).
There is also a section in this activity on the First Amendment with a page that students fill out regarding their thoughts/ideas on the 5 freedoms in the first amendment. We highly encourage a discussion on this page once students are done with the entire activity, as this will only help to supplement what they have learned through this activity.
Please note that Constitution Day is September 17th, but this lesson can be used throughout the entire year.
