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!!!
