You and the U.S. Constitution
Fourth graders write new rules of their school. In this rules and U.S. Constitution instructional activity, 4th graders discuss why we celebrate the fourth of July and examine the U.S. Constitution. Students discuss the differences between people now and people 200 years ago. Students take a walking tour of the school, discuss their observations, determine the rules in place, and brainstorm rules for safety, health, and games.
