iCivics Constitution Day Activities

Why is Constitution Day important to teach? Constitution Day, September 17, 2022, is an opportunity to engage students in the U.S. Constitution’s continued relevance. Use this day and the weeks leading up to teach students about the Constitution’s history, the rights students have, how those rights are protected, and how understanding their rights can help them make their voices heard.

This interactive lesson plan gives students a quick snapshot of the Constitution, including the purpose of each article, the powers of the three branches, how a bill becomes a law, and the concepts of separation of powers and checks and balances.
