Product Description
With the help of these quizzes, clips, songs, worksheet, PowerPoint, and test your students will learn the Preamble to the Constitution!

This lesson provides your students with an introduction to the Preamble to the Constitution.

The PowerPoint Presentation contains

4 video clips

1-Barney Fife "reciting" the Constitution

2-John Boehner getting confused about the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence

3-Schoolhouse Rock song over the Constitution. This helped my students learn the Preamble!

4-This clip from Dailymotion.com provides your students with a modern look at what the terms used in the Preamble mean. This clip helped my students to be able to better define the key terms from the document.

Also included in this file are 3 Fill in the Blank Quizzes over the Preamble with word banks. For some students I give them a word bank and for others I don't. It just depends on their level.

There is also a Fill in the Blank Preamble Test that I give at the end of the week.

Also included is a fun worksheet called "License Plate Preamble" where the students decode personalized license plates and write the Preamble to the Constitution. I have used this at the beginning of the lesson as a previewing activity and also at the end as a closing activity.

Lastly the PowerPoint includes a couple slides that show different ways the Preamble has been displayed or used (t-shirts, songs, wordle, art) and I challenge my students to come up with their own way to display the Preamble. I've made this an extra credit assignment in the past and I have also used it as a daily grade.

With the help of these quizzes, clips, songs, worksheet, PowerPoint, and test your students will learn the Preamble to the Constitution!

The Preamble to the Constitution Puzzle is also a fun way to review for students!
