This Preamble to the Constitution One-Pager is a creative project that lets your students demonstrate their understanding of the six goals of government laid out in the Preamble! Aligned to the Florida State Standard for Middle School Civics, SS.7.C.1.6 Preamble of the U.S. Constitution, students read a short passage on the purpose of the Preamble and the importance of its first three words “We the People”. They underline or highlight each of the six goals of government laid out in the Preamble, then, on the one-pager, illustrate each of these goals, using their creativity to demonstrate their comprehension!

This project makes for a great culminating activity, and looks wonderful on a bulletin board of student work!
