Constitution Day

Constitution Day is September 17.  It was on this day in 1787 that delegates met for the last time to sign the Constitution of the United States.  To celebrate this important day in American history, Simple Solutions has created some fun activities that you can use in your classroom.  These activities are based on our popular Simple Solutions Social Studies series.  They are designed for grades 3 through 8 but can be easily modified for lower primary classrooms.
