Do the Preamble (Un)Scramble

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)
  • Scissors

What You Do:

  1. A week before President’s Day, hang one of the copies of the Preamble on the refrigerator or other prominent spot in the house. Ask everyone in the family to read it over and memorize it as best they can.
  2. On President’s Day, cut the remaining copies of the Preamble into sections (break it up according to the commas).
  3. Now it's time to play a friendly game of Preamble (Un)Scramble. Give each member of the family a cut up copy of the Preamble, and race to see who can place the segments in the correct order first. The first one to unscramble the segments wins!
  4. After the game, have a family discussion about the importance of the Preamble, bringing up any other fun presidential facts you can think of, too!
