Are you prepared for Constitution Day? The Center offers a broad array of free, downloadable lessons on the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and citizenship on our Constitution Day homepage.

These lessons for grades K-12 are adapted from the Center’s internationally recognized civic education curricula, such as We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution and Foundations of Democracy.

The purpose of Constitution Day is to commemorate the creation and signing of the supreme law of the land and to honor and celebrate the privileges and responsibilities of U.S. citizenship for both native-born and naturalized citizens. Federal law requires that all schools receiving federal funds hold an educational program for their students on September 17 of each year.

For more information, please visit the Center’s Constitution Day homepage. Users of Share My Lesson can download selected Constitution Day lessons from the Center’s Share My Lesson page.
