Fourth grade students at Indian Lake Elementary are learning about the U.S. Constitution from those who put it into practice daily. Mrs. Honaker’s gifted students are finalizing a unit on the constitution and its Amendments.
To really delve into the matter, they invited in local law enforcement officials, area attorneys and a judge. The students created questions in advance and interviewed these legal experts on how the constitution impacts adults and children alike every day.
Mrs. Honaker says, “I want the students to understand the principles on which our country is founded and why. But I also want them to understand that this document created hundreds of years ago is still relevant everyday in our modern lives. “
The students will create short reports based on the information they learned from the officers and lawyers.
