Curricular Constitution Day Activities

Each year to celebrate Constitution Day, we have a very special activity for grades K-8: On Thursday, September 16th, ten guest presenters have been invited to dress up as important figures from history and to share their contributions to America’s “Foundations of Liberty.” Encourage students to bring a water bottle, wear sunscreen, and/or wear a hat. They will either be standing or sitting on the grass.
