Constitution Day FREEBIE

September 17th is Constitution Day.  This year Constitution Day happens to fall on a teaching day so I have been working on just a few ways to integrate it.  

**Amazon affiliate links are used below at no cost to you.

We will start with a poem.  I wrote this little poem with rhyming words and we will use it during our shared reading time for the week.
 
We will read this book, We the Kids by David Catrow, for an interactive read aloud. We will make connections. It’s a great read aloud in simple kid language!  The concept of a constitution can be difficult, but this read aloud helps ease that.
 
 
We can also do some writing and picture drawing.

 
 
Feel free to grab this FREEBIE and be set for Constitution Day activities in your classroom!
 
How will you celebrate Constitution Day in your classroom?
 
Constitution Day is September 17th every year. What an important day! Grab these teaching ideas, the FREEBIE, and you will be set for Constitution Day! Students in kindergarten, first grade, and second grade will be engaged in learning social studies and integrating writing activities! #historyactivities #firstgrade pin it
