U.S. Constitution is a Social Studies lesson designed to teach upper elementary students about the historical context in which the document was written, and why we have a Constitution. Students read an original, content-rich informational text about the Constitution. They use information in the text to create two foldables. Students then apply their knowledge to a constructed-response writing prompt in which they must cite their evidence using details in the text.
