This wonderfully creative Constitutional Convention lesson has students creating pop up figures of 6 Founding Fathers to learn about how each helped create America's Constitution at the convention.

Included is a PowerPoint along with a printable graphic organizer and 2 versions of "pop up figures" for students to cut out. One includes pictures of each Founding Father while the other uses drawings. Both include the following people from the Constitutional Convention:

  • James Madison
  • George Washington
  • Benjamin Franklin
  • Alexander Hamilton
  • Roger Sherman
  • George Mason

Students then place these onto an included printable graphic organizer that follows along with a visually-engaging PowerPoint presentation.

The PowerPoint covers all the essential information students need to know about each figure's contributions to America's Constitution as well as the key concepts and Compromises that helped create the American government. It also features both warm up and exit ticket questions to gauge student comprehension!

This lesson is amazing for your visual and kinesthetic learners as they are creating a fantastic visual representation of Founding Fathers literally rising up out of their notebooks.
