What Does The Preamble of the U.S. Constitution Mean?

Students begin the lesson plan by comparing and contrasting two state constitution's preambles. After identifying the themes in the state preambles, they compare the U.S. Constitution's preamble to the states. They work together to write their own new preamble to the Constitution and research the amending process of the Constitution itself.

Lesson Planet has really helped me with not going "bonkers" over trying to find innovative and fun activities to incorporate into my daily lessons. Kids, even highschoolers whom I teach, don't want to have lectures all the way through each class period, so having activities that are fun can make students more involved which helps them learn the concept of whatever topic I'm teaching.
