This past Friday was Constitution Day. According to www.constitutionday.com, “Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution by thirty-nine brave men on September 17, 1787, recognizing all who, are born in the U.S. or by naturalization, have become citizens.” Our morning announcements highlighted the importance of our constitution and the significance of the day’s celebration. In classrooms books were read about the birth of our country, our Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and its further Amendments. Teachers used videos and websites to engage students in a variety of activities related to the Constitution. Relating school and class rules to the Constitution helped students understand its significance for our entire country.
