Preamble to the Constitution

We are learning a lot about our country’s history. It is very interesting to read and learn about the origins of our country. This week we will be memorizing the Preamble to the Constitution.

If you like folder games, you are in luck! 🙂 I created a folder game to help my kids memorize it.

folder gameI have also created a few resources to go with this passage: an interactive sheet with flaps, picture cards, fill in the blank, and copywork.



Since the passage has several words that are a mouthful for a young learner, we decided to learn it by singing it. We will be using the tune from Schoolhouse Rock song. An oldie but still a goodie! We love the tune to this song, it is very catchy and the  kids love the video.

    Thank you so much for this fantastic lesson. I am a Teacher Librarian for an elementary school and I always struggle with teaching this one lesson in one day in 1/2 hour lesson. This will be perfect for my 2nd and 3rd graders.

  2. Thanks for sharing this! I’ll be using this in my homeschool with my son!
