Understanding Constitution Day and Making it Fun for Young Kids


Ponder upon this... As a teacher or a homeschooling parent, you would do anything for your students to live in a safe environment where they are treated fairly.

Also, where young kids can have access to quality education and be given opportunities where they can pursue careers they are passionate about.

If only there were a set of guidelines that would grant all children an equal chance to live happy and fulfilling lives.

That's what our founding fathers gave us all exactly when they crafted the Constitution for our nation. On September 17, which is the anniversary of the Constitution's adoption in 1787, we celebrate this day every year.

Find out why it's essential to let young students understand the Constitution, and I'll share a resource to help bridge the gap on this challenging topic.

PURPOSE OF CELEBRATING CONSTITUTION DAY

The main purpose of Constitution Day is to honor and celebrate both the rights and obligations of U.S. citizenship for both citizens who were born here and those who became citizens through naturalization, as well as the writing and signing of the country's founding document.

It also serves to educate people about the significance of the US Constitution and the freedoms and rights it grants US citizens.

Many Americans fly American flags in observance of Constitution Day. It is also a day to participate in organized community activities to foster a sense of civic pride.

It is a day to raise awareness of environmental and sanitation issues in addition to teaching people about the history and significance of the supreme law of the land.
