We the People of the United States: Scavenger Hunt.
Padgett, S. K.
An activity-based approach to learning the U.S. Constitution through a series of clues that describe the amendments and articles is presented in this lesson plan. The articles and amendments are placed in envelopes and put in different locations throughout the school. The clues given to the students partially describe the Constitution and partially describe the location of the article or amendment being sought. The objectives for the lesson plan are to teach: (1) a knowledge of the structure of the Constitution; (2) the basic principles that are to be found in the Constitution; (3) cooperation through developing group-working skills; and (4) deductive reasoning skills. The activity serves to stimulate the interest of the faculty and students in the study of the Constitution. (SM)
