So...I thought and thought about what I had tried that would be fun to share with you...and I decided I would share some ideas I tried as I taught the Constitution (well I am STILL teaching it...I know I am sooooo far behind.....but I will catch up eventually, right?)
1.) Awesome book- We the Kids- my students LOVED it! What a GREAT way to teach the Preamble...
2.) Schoolhouse Rock Video- The Preamble and the Constitution- it's a classic and if the kids sing along, they learn the whole preamble! :) (oh, and you can watch it for free on youtube! yay!!!)
3.) AND I AM GOING TO TRY...a website I found about Constitution Day...it has an interactive lesson and then a matching game for the students to play to review at the end. It is also divided by grade level like K-1, 2-3, and 4-5. This would be awesome to do as a whole class projected on the board or individually on student computers.
I hope you and your students can try some of these activities!
