Teaching Materials for Constitution Day
Justice by the People, the ABOTA Foundation’s free online curriculum, developed by Scholastic, Inc., was revised this spring and aligned with the Common Core State Standards for Language Arts.
There are 9 lesson plans (6 on the jury system) ready for teachers to use in the classroom on Constitution Day to meet the federal requirement to teach about the Constitution on September 17th.
The website includes the engaging Make Your Casecourtroom simulation game that students can play in one or two class periods. There are also 17 printables including fact sheets, vocabulary lists and timelines on the Constitution, the Right to Vote and the Right to Trial by Jury.
Check them out at Scholastic/American Justice and please share them with your teacher friends.
