My favorite part of homeschooling is being able to focus on important topics and subjects that may not be covered in school. These free constitution worksheets and printables will help your kids learn about this very important document.
Learning the Constitution
I wasn’t a history buff when I was in school, I barely skated by with passing grades. My husband however, is a huge history buff. He passed this trait down to my oldest who graduated from our homeschool last year. Our son loves history, especially American history and Government.
He loved it so much that he took two different Government classes in our homeschool. He even took a semester of Constitutional Literacy for a fun elective.
As a homeschool graduation present we sent my husband and son to Washington D.C. They were able to see the real Constitution document right in front of them. I know it was a precious moment for the both them.
Learning the Constitution is one of those topics that is very important for our family to learn. I am glad my son loved learning about it, and I hope your family enjoys it too.
