FES Preamble Project

On Sept. 17th, Constitution Day, the second grade classes spent some time discussing what the constitution is and the importance of this document. To turn this concept into more relatable terms for the students we read the book We the Kids The Preamble to the Constitution of the United States written by David Catrow. This book breaks down the preamble and discusses each part in more detail. Students then acted out the preamble, using a variety of props, to demonstrate what each part means to them.
