To better understand the basic information within the United States Constitution, students will browse through the Constitution and find the main ideas about the 7 Articles and the 27 Amendments. Included are 17 questions about the articles, and 27 questions about the amendments. All questions (except for one) will be answered with a number. This is a great way to introduce, study, or review the United States Constitution for your Constitution unit or a Constitution Day activity. You may even want to group your students and make this into a competition or race. Whatever method you use, your students will certainly gain a better understanding of the facts and layout of the U.S. Constitution.
Examples of questions include:
- Which article explains the Judicial Branch and our court systems?
- According to Article II, how old must you be to become President?
- This amendment outlaws slavery.
- This amendment gives women the right to vote?
- And more.....
Answer keys are included. A copy of the U.S. Constitution is not included in this product. You will want to use the Constitution found in the textbook or another source. This "Constitution: Scavenger Hunt" product can be used for studying just the Articles (Original Constitution), just the Amendments, or both for a broad overview. This has proven to be one of the best ways for my students to comprehend the information and layout of the U.S. Constitution. In addition, I also use Constitution: The Articles, Primary Source in my unit on the Constitution. Enjoy, and thank you for your comments and ratings!
