The Constitution and the Preamble to the Constitution

Friday is the day before Constitution Day (Sept. 17th). We learned about the Constitution and the Preamble.

We watched an excellent video titled We the People, which was a six minute song and photo montage. The song features one of our former Harlan students as a singer, and it is a delight to watch. Click on the link to watch the video:

Mrs. Cooper learned the words to the Preamble to the Constitution when she was in elementary school, thanks to the Saturday morning cartoons from Schoolhouse Rock. Perhaps your parents did, too!

We watched the short video and heard the song several times, and many of the students enjoyed trying to sing along! Mrs. Cooper still remembers every word, so she thought it would be fun to share the song and see if the class can learn it too, over time.

Web safety message from Mrs. Cooper: We had a discussion about having parent permission before using the internet, especially before searching Google or sites like YouTube. I found the video below on SchoolTube, and thought I'd post it here to give you the video directly. It is a bit better quality than the one we saw at school that came from YouTube.
