Constitution Day...September 17th...Informational text and Activities

2017 is the 226th anniversary of the Constitution.

In 2004 it was decided that each educational institution that receives Federal funds for a fiscal year is required to hold an educational program about the U.S. Constitution for its students.

Don't fret...

This packet is perfect! 
Let's begin with vocabulary cards for posting and word work activities for placing in the word work center.

The informational text comes in three forms:
 a one page anchor chart style, a print/fold/read booklet, and a 6 page mini book.
These are ideal for partner reading, small groups or guided reading with a whole group.
Highlight key words and key concepts.

Those are followed by a true/false assessment, a definition page, and a partner game.
My favorite is the "SCHOOL" Constitution the class will create.

Also included in the packet is a section on the Bill of Rights.
The focus is on Religion, Speech, and Written.
Students have an opportunity to read and write about the freedoms they enjoy.
Not shown are writing pages and a class book cover.

There is an anchor chart for what traits a "good citizen" shows.
And there is a partner game for demonstrating "good citizen" traits.
