There’s a long history of celebrating Constitution Day at Indian Lake Schools. From high school to elementary, students paid special attention to inalienable rights on the 228th anniversary of the writing of the U.S. Constitution. Second graders studied up on what the historical document means, even to children. They read a non-fiction book called the U.S. Constitution by Norman Pearl covering who wrote the rules for the country, the Bill of Rights and the branches of government. Meantime, 7th grade social studies students completed a Constitution web-based exercise that was aimed at helping students gain a better understanding of how citizenship has development in our country. At the high school, government students got “Pocket Constitutions” which they will use nearly every day of class throughout the year.
