Constitution Week Resources


September 17th (1787) is the anniversary of the United States Constitution and the start of Constitution Week.  So often we hear or read about “Constitutional Rights” and freedoms being debated, taken away, or altered in various ways.

This week my kids will be reviewing, researching, and notebooking all things constitutional so it will be clear to them just what our constitutional rights are.

Below are some of the resources we will be incorporating into our Constitution Week homeschool studies.

Constitution Day History and Quizzes

Constitutional Convention Video Playlist :

  • Liberty’s Kids #40- We the People
  • Three Branches Rap
  • Constitution Style (Gangnam Style parody)
  • The Great Compromise Explained in 5 Minutes
  • The Great Compromise Song
  • All 27 Amendments (in four minutes)
  • Bill of Rights (Shake It Off parody)

This  song is from my childhood (from Saturday morning cartoons) and it is how I’ve always remembered the preamble to the constitution.  This is also how my older kids have learned it.  Now it’s time to pass it down to the youngest two.   School House Rock – The Constitution
