1-2-3 Come Do Some Vocabulary Building With Me
If your school has to fulfill the Constitution Day educational requirement, you'll enjoy this vocabulary-building packet. There is a lot of vocabulary that goes along with explaining the Constitution. Many of these words are new to your students.
To help kiddos understand the Constitution, it's necessary to go over this vocabulary. To make this easy-peasy for you, I made an alphabetical list of 42 words related to the Constitution.
If you thought of anymore, I'd enjoy hearing from you, and will add them to my list. firstname.lastname@example.org
I used the list to make 42 cute patriotic word cards. Choose the ones that are appropriate for your grade level.
You can use these in a pocket chart or as flashcards to explain words and give definitions, then post them by your word wall.
There are also 42 definition cards. I numbered these so they match the list of words.
This makes it easy for you to match the word cards up with their definitions. Make an extra set and use as an independent center.
You can also play all sorts of games with the cards, like Memory Match or "I Have; Who Has?"
Hold up a card and ask students to read it. Who is familiar with this word? Can anyone give a definition?
Place the cards in separate baskets. Have students choose a card from each basket and give the definition of the word card that they chose or the word that is being defined. Students can work with a partner and alphabetize some cards, or play "Speed" against each other to see who can alphabetize their set first.
Use the cards for Daily 5 word work. Choose several cards for students to use in a sentence. and/or have older students think of synonyms for some of the word cards.
I've included a cover so students can make a Constitution Vocabulary Dictionary as well. Constitution Day Word Work Packet.

Thanks for visiting today. I'm off to go figure out how to turn the new thermostat to heat instead of air.
Unfortunately the fall weather today is a bit chilly on the outside, as well as the inside. Hope you have a fun-filled day.
