Choose the Educational Activities section to find lessons based on Constitutional Amendments and the U.S. Court of Appeals.

In the ClassroomInclude these free resources and activities to use in your social studies classroom when teaching about the U.S. Constitution. Instead of asking students to take individual notes throughout your lessons, use Google documents to create shared notes. Ask students to highlight and annotate important information shared. Use Wakelet, reviewed here, to create "wakes" for students to organize information. Add websites, documents, videos, and more to any wake for students to access information in one site. As a final project, enhance student learning by challenging them to use a video explanation tool like Rawshorts, reviewed here, to share the background and information learned about Supreme Court cases and decisions.
