Product Description
This cooperative learning lesson is a great introduction to the U.S. Constitution or stand-alone lesson if you're short on time.

Students will explore the purpose and content of the Constitution by doing a close reading of the Preamble, then in groups rewriting it in phrases into their own words. By the end of the lesson, the class will have created a new Preamble with the same meaning.

Includes
- a lesson outline with step-by-step instructions and suggested discussion questions
- the Preamble, which can be used as a handout, transparency, or copied into a Power Point
- Close Reading guided worksheet for students to use during group work
- Preamble slips pre-divided into manageable phrases
