Constitution Day, also known as Citizenship Day, celebrates the signing of the U.S. Constitution. It is also a day to honor those who have become U.S. citizens. Constitution/ Citizenship Day is observed on September 17th each year. I love to incorporate significant days and observances into my lessons whenever possible. Don’t have any ideas to commemorate the day? Now is a great time to start gathering some fun resources! Both of these units would make great additions to your Constitution Day classroom fun.
