Preamble of the Constitution Lesson, Graphic Organizer and Assignment

Preamble of the Constitution Lesson, Graphic Organizer and Assignment
Product Description
Thanks for visiting the Social Studiers! Visit our blog at www.thesocialstudiers.com.

This is a one day lesson to teach the Preamble of the Constitution. It is fun, makes connections between the past and present, and gets students writing and drawing.
I used it successfully for 5th and 8th graders for 7 years, but it would be appropriate for 4th graders too.

Students will learn:
-What a preamble is
-The 6 reasons for government explained in the Preamble of the Constitution

Students will show this by:
-Using their graphic organizer quote and paraphrase the 6 reasons of preamble, and drawing an example of how each of the 6 reasons of government are happening today.

Included are:
-A PowerPoint with introductory set, vocabulary, a breakdown of the Preamble and thorough instructions for the lesson.
-A graphic organizer that doubles as an assignment.
