    Pledge
  • America Written by: Samuel Francis Smith
    • My country, 'tis of thee, Sweet land of Liberty, Of thee I sing; Land where my fathers died, Land of the pilgrim's pride! From ev'ry mountain side, Let freedom ring!
  • The U.S. Constitution By Ms. Bryan’s Class/ Standiford Elementary School
  • Constitution Day
    • Today we are celebrating Constitution Day!
    • On Sept 17, 1787 our Constitution was signed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at Independence Hall.
    • We take the time today to remember the 39 brave men who changed the course of history, creating the United States Constitution.
  • The Constitution
    • The Constitution is a written plan of our government.
    • The constitution is the highest law of the land.
    • All Americans must follow this law.
    • The Constitution says how the government works:
      • We have a President
      • We have a Congress
      • We have a Court system
  • Bill of Rights
      • Rights are things that all people have because they
      • live in the United States.
      • The Bill of Rights is a part of the constitution and lists the rights of the people.
  • The Framers
    • In 1787, a group of men met to write the Constitution. They did not like the way the country was going. They fixed it by creating the Constitution.
    • We call these men The Framers.
    • Some of the framers are very famous.
      • George Washington was a Framer.
      • So was Ben Franklin.
    • The Framers met during a hot summer. They had a lot of arguments. In the end, they agreed to the words in the Constitution. They knew they had to agree. If they did not agree, the fighting would keep going.
    • After the Framers wrote the Constitution, they asked the states to approve it. It took some time, but all the states did approve it.
    • Some people did not like the Constitution.
    • Some were afraid because it did not do enough to protect the rights of the people.
    • It had no Bill of Rights.
    • Promises were made to add a Bill of Rights.
    • After the Constitution passed, the Bill of Rights was added.
    • The Bill of Rights is the first ten changes to the Constitution.
    • The Bill of Rights is very important.
    • It protects important ideas.
    • It protects your right to say what you want.
    • It lets you think for yourself.
    • It keeps the laws from being too hard.
    • It gives rules for the police.
    • It lets you believe in God if you want.
    • No one can tell you not to believe.
    • It lets you gather with your friends to talk.
    • You can read newspapers.
    • The Bill of Rights also protects your home.
    • It helps keep Americans safe.
    • Today, we are very happy the Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution.
    • The Constitution sets up the government.
      • It is split into three parts.
        • Congress
        • President
        • Courts
    • One part is the Congress.
      • The Congress makes laws.
      • The people elect the members of Congress.
    • The next part is the President.
      • The President enforces the laws .
    • The Last Part is the Courts.
    • The Courts decide what the law means when there is a question
    • All of the parts have to work together.
    • Just like the Framers agreed on the Constitution, the parts have to agree on the laws.
    • No part has too much power.
    • The power is shared.
    • This helps protect the people.
  • Preamble
    • We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

    • I worked for all my life
    • And I had to start again with just my
