Preamble - U.S. Constitution. This Preamble assignment will have students take the "old language" found in the Preamble and use a dictionary, thesaurus, or online source to figure out what message was trying to be explained when it was written.

What I've always liked about this assignment is hearing students talking to each other and trying to figure out which words we use today mean the same thing as the words used back in 1787.

This assignment, as well as the included quiz, are in both paper and digital formats.
