Celebrate Constitution Day

On September 17, 1787 the U.S. Constitution was signed by thirty-nine brave men who changed the course of history. Celebration of Constitution Day demonstrates our love for the United States of America and the blessings of freedom our Founding Fathers secured for us. This celebration is a time for us to continue their legacy and develop habits of citizenship in a new generation of Americans.

The websites listed below, along with many other resources, provide information about our constitution and games and activities for parents and teachers to use to inform and excite students about our nation’s history. Understanding our past and appreciating what it means to be an American are necessary traits to instill in today’s youth.
