Organizing the Sections of Our Constitution

This Organizing the Sections of Our Constitution lesson plan also includes:

Young writers use the Iroquois Constitution as a model to help them organize their own class constitution in the seventh instructional activity of this unit. Using this historic text helps students better understand the structure of this type of writing, how each section has a main idea with supporting rules/laws. Young scholars then apply their learning as they work in small groups to categorize their own class constitution written in previous lessons. A great resource that assists the class in creating a meaningful piece of collaborative writing.
