1-2-3 Teach Some Constitution Day Activities With Me

I'm back!  I took the summer off for a much-deserved rest, but am now in the swing of things again and excited to share my latest creation.

The U.S. Constitution, constitution activities, constitution facts, constitution writing prompts, constitution crafts, constitution day activities, constitution day bulletin boardsI don't know about you, but when it came to being a fount of knowledge about our Constitution, I was sadly lacking expertise.

So, in 2004, when our government declared September 17th Constitution Day (also Citizenship Day), all public schools had to teach something about the Constitution.

I, along with many of my teacher friends thought, "Where will I find the time to squeeze that activity in with all of the other 'have-to-get-done' lessons?" 

Don't get me wrong, I love being an American citizen and am extremely grateful for our country's freedoms, feeling blessed indeed; but as a teacher faced with yet another thing to add to an already full plate, one can't help but feel a bit overwhelmed, with the prospect of "What on earth am I going to find that my early elementary students will understand?" All while thinking, " and when will I get time to prep this?"

The U.S. Constitution, constitution activities, constitution facts, constitution writing prompts, constitution crafts, constitution day activities, constitution day bulletin boardsNo worries.  I put in the time so you don't have to!

"Find Me a Fact" is an easy-peasy, no prep, "print and go” activity you can simply run off and pass out.

If you don’t know much about the Constitution, no problem.

I’ve spent hours researching factual information about the Constitution, then compiled 8-pages of easy-to-understand background information, plus interesting and fun facts for you.

The U.S. Constitution, constitution activities, constitution facts, constitution writing prompts, constitution crafts, constitution day activities, constitution day bulletin boardsStudents simply pick a “Topper”. I designed these semi-circular "glue ons" complete with Constitution-themed clip art. 

There are 9 designs students can choose from, and are just the right size to top a full sheet of writing paper. 

The graphics come in both black & white, as well as color, so that teachers can quickly & easily make an example to share.

The U.S. Constitution, constitution activities, constitution facts, constitution writing prompts, constitution crafts, constitution day activities, constitution day bulletin boardsI've also included 4 kinds of writing paper templates.

Pick the one that best suits your students' writing abilities, or have them complete their assignment on a sheet of notebook paper. 

You can use my background information to make your own example, or share it with your students as a non-fiction read. 

The U.S. Constitution, constitution activities, constitution facts, constitution writing prompts, constitution crafts, constitution day activities, constitution day bulletin boardsI designed an Uncle Sam "I want you..." poster that can be used to introduce the lesson. (The poster lists what you want students to do.) 

Afterwards, you can use Sam as the center for your bulletin board display, as completed projects make an awesome student-made bulletin board for Constitution Day, that's sure to get lots of compliments.

The U.S. Constitution, constitution activities, constitution facts, constitution writing prompts, constitution crafts, constitution day activities, constitution day bulletin boardsI've also included several posters to scatter around your display to add some extra pizzazz.

Simply run off the patterns.

The U.S. Constitution, constitution activities, constitution facts, constitution writing prompts, constitution crafts, constitution day activities, constitution day bulletin boardsStudents choose a "topper" then they color, cut and glue this to their completed assignment, which is to find 3 facts about the Constitution.

You can use my list of educational and very helpful website LINKS about the Constitution, to steer your kiddos in the right direction.

This can be done as a homework assignment, or be part of your class computer lab.

There's also a worksheet that students fill out to help them navigate finding their 3 facts, as they provide URL links and explain how they know these facts to be true and the websites they used reliable.

The U.S. Constitution, constitution activities, constitution facts, constitution writing prompts, constitution crafts, constitution day activities, constitution day bulletin boardsThere are also 7 “danglers”, which are a bunting-like decoration that's glued to the bottom of their paper.

You can skip this step, but I really think the borders add extra pizzazz and take just a few minutes more time.

The U.S. Constitution, constitution activities, constitution facts, constitution writing prompts, constitution crafts, constitution day activities, constitution day bulletin boardsTo reinforce lessons learned about the Constitution, students share one of their facts with their classmates the next day.

As an extension to the lesson, after hearing everyone's answer, children can choose their favorite or most interesting fact that they learned, and jot it down on yet another worksheet

Yippee! Fun, fast, educational, easy and a bulletin board to boot.

Woo Hoo and Happy Constitution Day to you!

 1-2-3 Come Do Some Constitution Day Activities With Me

easy constitution day activitiesWith a federal mandate that any schools accepting federal funds, need to do some educational activity associated with the Constitution, on September 17th, I wanted to think up something that my Y5’s could easily understand.  

With everything else that teachers have to cover, I also wanted what we did to be something simple and especially relevant to them.

This packet does exactly that, because I've tied it into classroom management: jobs of students and teachers, as well as the rules and regulations they must follow.

These activities not only tie in with the Constitution, they are quick and easy to implement.  Children can wrap their heads around these Constitutional comparisons and the result will be a more caring classroom climate, with less inappropriate behavior.

The Constitution is a document that serves as the foundation of American government.  To help explain this to students, make a document of jobs as well as rules for your classroom and have all of the children sign it.

The Constitution is broken up into 3 branches.  (Legislative, Executive, and Judicial) They all have specific jobs.   Like wise, teachers and students have jobs. 

classroom management ideas, constitution day ideas, constitution day activities, social contracts, classroom contracts, writing prompts for constitution day, classroom rules, qualities of a good student, lessons for constitution day, qualitites of a good teacherFirst, discuss and make a list of all the  jobs and responsibilities of a good student. Then make up a list of jobs (responsibilities) for teachers.  I’ve included headers for you to put up on your board, so that you can brainstorm with your students and write things under the appropriate heading.

Children’s discussion will often involve what they think the qualities of a good student and good teacher are.   I’m sure some of their ideas will make you smile. ( “Teachers need to smell nice.” )   

classroom management ideas, constitution day ideas, constitution day activities, social contracts, classroom contracts, writing prompts for constitution day, classroom rules, qualities of a good student, lessons for constitution day, qualitites of a good teacherWrite students’ ideas on the board.  I’ve included a completed list of things we thought of to help you, as well as blank templates to fill in your own.  I’d enjoy seeing what your kiddos come up with. You can e-mail me at: diane@teachwithme.com  

classroom management ideas, constitution day ideas, constitution day activities, social contracts, classroom contracts, writing prompts for constitution day, classroom rules, qualities of a good student, lessons for constitution day, qualitites of a good teacherHang up your lists on a bulletin board.  There’s also a poster that you can put in the middle of your board, after all of your students have signed it.

Next, discuss your rules.  Because students have been in school for several weeks, you’ve hopefully have already established a list of rules with them.  If you don't have a set of rules posted, click on the link for my simple rules poster.

Review the rules and make a list of them on the board.  (Tie this in with the Constitution, as our country also has rules, which are laws that people must follow.)

classroom management ideas, constitution day ideas, constitution day activities, social contracts, classroom contracts, writing prompts for constitution day, classroom rules, qualities of a good student, lessons for constitution day, qualitites of a good teacherDiscuss how things are going .  Is everyone following the rules?  Are they good rules; fair rules; necessary?  Do you need to change, modify, or add any rules? (Tie this in with the Constitution by briefly explaining the amendments to the Constitution.) I've included a writing prompt page where students can jot down 3 reasons why doing their job and following rules is important.

What are the consequences of not following the rules?  What do they think would happen if there were no rules to follow and everyone adopted an “anything goes” attitude? (Briefly discuss the correlation of this to the Constitution’s checks, balances and punishment for breaking laws.)

An easy way to make your classroom constitution is to make a social contract.  Head your poster: “We the (kindergarten) students of (Orchard Trails Elementary) promise to . . .” and then list what students feel are important promises (rules, jobs and responsibilities).

classroom management ideas, constitution day ideas, constitution day activities, social contracts, classroom contracts, writing prompts for constitution day, classroom rules, qualities of a good student, lessons for constitution day, qualitites of a good teacherHave each child sign the poster.  (Remember to have new students sign it too.)  This is now a working document (like the Constitution).  Discuss how signing something is a big deal.  This is binding.   Even young children understand the importance of a promise and following  through.   (“But you promised . . .)  If the class as a whole, or an individual student, is not keeping their promises per the terms of your social contract, refer to the poster and ask:

“Did you promise to follow the rules, be a good listener, be kind to one another? etc.”  (Obviously they did.)  After thy take responsibility for their actions then ask: “What would have been a better choice?  What should happen now?”  Click on the link to view/download the Constitution Day Jobs & Rules Packet.

classroom management ideas, constitution day ideas, constitution day activities, social contracts, classroom contracts, writing prompts for constitution day, classroom rules, qualities of a good student, lessons for constitution day, qualitites of a good teacherI found a cute social contract over at Corner Character blog spot.  I like how she wrote each promise in a different color marker and then had students add their painted handprint to the side of the chart, adding their names when the paint dried. 

classroom management activities, social contracts, constitution day activitiesI designed my own social contract, tracing my students' hands on a variety of colors of construction paper.

I glued our "promise poster" to the center of a piece of tag board, then "framed" it with the colorful prints.

For more accountability, have children sign their own names, which makes them feel important & more accountable. For added pizzazz, when school pictures come back, copy, cut & glue one to each child's hand.

classroom management ideas, constitution day ideas, constitution day activities, social contracts, classroom contracts, writing prompts for constitution day, classroom rules, qualities of a good student, lessons for constitution day, qualitites of a good teacherSince the Preamble is one of the most famous and familiar parts of the Constitution, I’ve included several trace and write worksheets in the packet.

I find that a short video is often the best way to review and get more information into my students’ minds.  A nice way to end your day is to choose a short video from this American history website.

The first one is only 4 minutes, another on the Founding Fathers is 3 minutes and a final one entitled America Gets A Constitution is 4 minutes.  They are easy for little ones to understand and include some good background information.

One of the things that my Y5’s were learning for the first time was The Pledge Of Allegiance.

Like many schools through out the US, we started our day with announcements.

Our principal’s voice would boom over the PA system and lead us in the Pledge.

My Y5’s were doing a wonderful job with memorization, but when I asked my little ones what they were saying, they were clueless, or had a very different interpretation of what some of the words meant.

For example, many of them thought indivisible meant being invisible.

I told them that it was important to understand what they were pledging, and asked them if they wanted to know what the words really meant?

Their curiosity was peaked and most of them raised their hands in agreement.

I designed My Pledge Definition Dictionary with kid-friendly synonyms they could understand.

As long as teachers are required to increase students’ vocabularies, why not start with these very important words!

This packet also includes a certificate of praise as well as a copy of The Pledge of Allegiance for students to practice tracing, as a means of memorization, so that they become familiar with the words.

The 49-page Flag Activities Packet, covers the history of our flag, information about the flag, and includes links, articles, art projects, skill sheets and writing activities.
