Creating Classroom Constitutions

Creating Classroom Constitutions  thumbnail135477

Elementary students celebrated Constitution Day on Sept. 17 by learning facts about the U.S. Constitution and applying them to their own classroom and school rules.

Dressed in red, white and blue, students at Mills Pond and Mt. Pleasant elementary schools learned about the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. At Mills Pond Elementary School, each class worked together to set up their classroom rules and watched a short video on the U.S. Constitution. After penning their rules for the year, each member of the class signed their names to uphold their class constitution throughout the school year. The school’s computer lab was decorated and used as a meeting place for the signing. The rules and signatures will be prominently displayed in each classroom.  

At Mt. Pleasant Elementary School, fifth graders learned about the U.S. Constitution by watching a video and creating a graphic organizer.
