The Constitution

Eighth graders watch as their teacher presents information on the Constitution, government and laws through a PowerPoint presentation. In groups, they discuss the importance of government and laws and identify the main ideas in the Constitution and Declaration of Independence. To end the lesson, they work together to make a poster to show how a bill becomes law.
