Charlie Brown Constitution video. I love the Charlie Brown history videos- :)
I teach 5th grade and our social studies curriculum is U.S. History, which I LOVE!!! We integrated our U.S. History while creating our class mission statement. I helped my students understand the preamble to the Constitution and we made it work for our mission statement. Then I got a paper bag at the grocery store, wrote the mission statement on the bag, crumpled it up and then burned the edges (did that at home). Students will use my quill and ink to sign. SO fun!!!
5th grade- Constitution Preamble Quilt. We put each group in charge of one section of the preamble. They had to write it as is, rewrite it in their own words, then illustrate it's meaning.
BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT .. think I will use this in my lesson plan!
This lesson, "Wanted: A Just Right Government," is designed to help students learn how the U.S. Constitution came to exist by looking at the tensions and differences of opinion that existed among early American states and citizens. Also includes a PPT presentation.
