Constitution Day

Hello Everyone!
Constitution Day is coming up next week (Sept 17).  We are required to teach our kiddos about the important concepts on which our country was found. We plan on using David Catrow's book We the Kids as a starting place for some good discussions and sharing.  We put together this little book for the kids to make and show their interpretations of some of the mature concepts.  I am excited to see what they come up with! 

There are pages for each phrase in the preamble.

The unit includes some information on the history of the constitution and a little word search bonus! Hope this helps you engage your kids in this important lesson of peace and freedom.
Stay tuned for more first grade fun!!
Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. Thank you for sharing. I'm a little bit more excited about teaching this than I was. I just feel it is a hard concept for a first grader to grasp.

  2. Thanks so much for sharing. I was having a hard time finding resources for the primary grades!

  3. Thank you! I love how you explain the concept of the constitution in kid friendly terms!
