Constitution Song

 

School House Rock composed an informative and catchy song that highlights the Constitution. The song contains both important background knowledge and actual phrasing from the beginning of the document. The preamble is sung to a catchy tune so that students have a way to actively listen and remember the song. There is also a video for students to watch as the song is playing which demonstrates the writing process of the constitution and effects on the United States and the American people. The video can be used as an introduction, a daily warm up, or a study review. It can also be used as an example for a lesson where students create their own song/jingle/re-enactment of the Constitution.
