At the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, on September 17, 1787, the U.S. Constitution was signed by 38 of the 41 delegates present (This Day in US History.) Two years later this document would become the foundation of the Country’s Bill of Rights.
Therefore, this week CMLE’s Recommend Ed Tech Tool is the National Constitution Center’s website. This phenomenal resource is broken down into three main components;
- The Experience Center showcases exhibits, programs, museum links and current initiatives.
- Search Constitutional Articles, Amendments, and Issues by using the Explore the Constitution tab.
- And finally, click on the Learn tab to participate in free and live webcasts (Constitutional Hall Pass), find out more about civic holidays and how they became recognized, incorporate recommended resources from the educational resources page, and much more.
Tip: If you work with a teacher interested in traveling to the nation’s capital, the Plan Your Trip tab provides tickets, visitor’s guides and lists with links for trip essentials.
