Constitution Day fun and a HUGE GIVEAWAY!!!

Happy Constitution Day! My kids were so excited to learn about America and the Constitution today. We didn't do tons, just a few short activities to get the students familiar with the concepts.  To start the day, I got out a globe and showed the kids where England and America were as I gave a brief history on how America was founded. Then we watched the "Rights and Responsibilities" video on Brainpop Jr. (love that site!) and related their rules and laws to the ones we have in our classroom. I asked them why it was important to have rules and their answers were so earnest and adorable! After watching the video I read the "C is for Constitution" page in this book:

And then we made the adorable Constitution Day hats that Kindercraze so graciously offered as a freebie over at her blog! I did a slightly different spin on hers, but all the credit goes to Maria. Thanks, Maria!! The kids loved them!

While we were making our hats, I got a little chuckle from one student's hat - she forgot to finish writing the word "Constitution", so it said "Happy Cons Day"... haha! Wait! What are we celebrating again? Not cons, I hope! ;) Apologies, I am easily amused...

That's just a little peek into our Constitution Day fun! Now onto the exciting news... A GIVEAWAY!
