Constitution Day Classroom Activities

Constitution Day is an annual American holiday celebrated on September 17, the same day 39 delegates signed the Constitution in 1787. You can commemorate Constitution Day in the classroom in many ways. Here are just a few ideas;

1. Have your students participate in a Constitution Scavenger Hunt:

Students will work with a partner and compete against other teams to find answers to 20 scenarios. This is a great critical-thinking activity and lots of fun too!

2. Test your students' knowledge about the Constitution with this fun game! Get it FREE HERE.

3. Explain the structure of the Constitution with this engaging presentation. It reviews the Articles of Confederation, the three branches of government and includes a notes template and film clips.

4. If you teach Civics this presentation might be helpful because it reviews the Principles of the Constitution; Popular Sovereignty, Limited Government, Separation of Powers, Checks and Balances, and Judicial Review.


I hope you find these resources useful!

Happy Teaching!
