PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This pack contains four activities that center on the Preamble of the United States Constitution.

Vocabulary - the first activity is a sentence expansion technique called "but, because, so" where students are given an independent clause containing a target vocabulary word ending with "but, because, so." Students complete the sentence using each conjunction then write an independent sentence containing the target vocabulary word and one of the three conjunctions.

Close Reading - This activity is a shared reading of the Preamble with three levels of questioning. Students answer several questions that range from literal 'right there' questions to examining the diction to determine the purpose of the Preamble.

Capitalization – At the time the Preamble was written, there were no standardize rules regarding capitalization. The capitalization activity is a simple text-marking activity using standard capitalization rules.

Mentor sentence – this activity uses the Preamble as a mentor sentence to introduce a “write your own constitution” project. Students will use the Preamble as a mentor sentence to set up their own preambles with six clearly-defined goals for their school.
