Constitution Day - September 17th

Constitution Day is observed on September 17.  According to Wikipedia Constitution Day in 2004 to recognize the ratification of the US constitution and those who have become US citizens. Before 2004 this day was known as Citizenship Day.  The 2004 act mandates that all publicly funded educational institutions provide educational programming on the history of the American Constitution on September 17th.

There are many great resources for educators that range from readers theater to trial simulation games.  Check out some of these sites and I would encourage everyone to leave comments and share other sites that they like.


  1. Great resources to help students learn more about their constitution and what it means to be a citizen!

  2. There are great resources available for many topics. The trick is knowing about them and integrating them into our current curriculum instead of adding on.

    I have learned so much this summer reading other people's blog. Thanks for organizing the alliance.
