Constitution Day...Week...All Year!

Constitution Day
Here in Texas...
Texas law (Tex. Education Code §29.907 & §Tex. Admin. Code 74.33) requires Texas public schools to acknowledge Celebrate Freedom week (week of September 17th) and conduct appropriate instruction concerning the intent, meaning, and importance of the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, the abolitionist movement and women’s suffrage.

So, my fellow Instructional Technology Specialist and I put together some resources for this patriotic day!

Love this book!
Usually, this is the first book I read to my class. We discuss the meaning behind the constitution and create our class norms.


Who doesn't love School House Rock?!!!

Plus, we created a fun activity.
Constitution Day QR Code scavenger hunt down our main hallway for all to explore!


Just 5 little questions to find out your hidden identity!
What are your results? Post in comments!


Challenge another class to a 25 question quiz about the Constitution!
Easy to set up!


Happy Constitution Day!
