Do the Preamble (Un)Scramble
What better way to celebrate President's Day than reflect on the opening words of our US Constitution? Most of us have read the Preamble before, but how many of us have stopped to ponder what it means? A great activity for the whole family, this energetic memory game will help you better understand this fundamental part of American life. It'll also give your middle schooler practice in memorizing text, a skill that will come in handy during speech class!
The Preamble reads as follows: "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
What You Need:
- Several copies of the Preamble to the Constitution (you can find it online or type it up and print it out yourself)
