Next week is Constitution Day. In honor of that, I wanted to share some ideas for helping you and your kids learn about the Constitution of the United States. We have a couple of Constitution learning resources that we have been using and enjoying in our home. I also have a free Preamble Fill In The Blank page that you can print for your kids to learn the Preamble to the Constitution.
Read some fun books on the Constitution! Books can teach your kids so much about the constitution in a way that they understand. Here are some that we own or have read from the library.
Constitution Books for Kids:

Learn the Preamble to the Constitution. My oldest has memorized it, but we are working on it again with my second child this year. Here is an image you can print out to help you learn it. Then use the fill in the blank and the copywork pages to drill it and make sure they really know it!
Download your FREE Preamble to the Constitution copywork and fill in the blank pages!
