I love this modification on the Preamble. This is a great way to integrate literacy into the social studies classroom. The class will work together to develop classroom expectations and how to be a good classroom citizen!
Back to School Class Constitution Group Activity - Great for having students establish classroom rules while also learning about the US Constitution! Awesome first week of school activity or for Constitution Day!
We the Kids: The Preamble to the Constitution of the United States by David Catrow (b) :The student will describe the meaning of "We the People" from the Preamble to the U. constitution as a reflection of consent of the governed to popular sovereignty.
Lesson Classroom Constitution: Beginning of School/Citizenship: On the first day of school we sit down as a class and make our own classroom rules. The rules the students create become the standard for expected behavior by which all students agree.
A great back to school activity that celebrates teamwork, citizenship, social studies, reading, and writing. A great way to challange the students to take ownership of their rights & responsibilities in the classroom.
