Constitution Day!

In honor of Constitution Day, we read We The Kids and discussed what each part of the Preamble meant to us. I wrote a summary of our discussion on chart paper and the students illustrated each part of the Preamble. I also put each part in kid friendly words to help my students understand what it meant. I think they got a lot out of it and it made sense to them.

They are playing a game and taking turns

                          My favorite: This guy is protecting the castle with a laser!
                               This one it cute too. I guess he thinks we should take care of the animals too!

  1. I am impressed! Congrats to you and your Kindergartners for honoring Constitution Day!

  2. Very impressive, indeed! I think we often underestimate what kids can understand. Thanks for sharing this. Renee
