In this Constitution Activity Pack there are three main activities:
Introduce the vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too. Also, the vocabulary flip flaps are perfect for interactive notebooks.
Next, have students read the informational articles all about the writing of the U.S. Constitution and character studies where they will meet George Washington, Ben Franklin, and James Madison. The articles are written in a kid-friendly language with scenes for students to connect and color.
Have students complete 5 page Flip Book all about U.S. Constitution. For the Flip Book, you could have students do one page at each center or station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the booklet. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip-Up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12 x 18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover. Students could then decorate the cover of the booklet.
Celebrate American History and Constitution Day on September 17th with this hands-on resource!
