Constitution and Constitutional Convention PowerPoint Lesson
This beautiful PowerPoint lesson covers everything students need to know about the creation of the US Constitution based on state and Common Core Standards. Awesome to use on Constitution Day or during your unit on the founding of America!
It begins with the major weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation and how they were exposed by Shay's Rebellion in 1786. It then reviews the major players at the Philadelphia (or Constitutional) Convention, the plans, major compromises, and structure of the Constitution.
It includes fantastic visuals and easy-to-follow notes, along with a warm-up and exit ticket for students to complete. In all, a fantastic lesson for any range of students!
