Ideas and Resources to Teach Constitution Day in Kindergarten

Today we celebrated Constitution Day in my kindergarten classroom. Since the Constitution can be such a very BIG idea for young little minds, we always put a patriotic spin on this very special day. To begin, the students arrive at school dressed in red, white and blue. Then the fun begins!

The highlight of our day is creating patriotic hats! With this very simple activity, students receive a 4″ band of red construction paper and several 2×4″ strips of white construction paper rectangles. The children use glue sticks to attach the white strips to the band. Each student then cuts out 4 blue construction paper stars and glues the stars onto their headband. Once all of the cutting and gluing is complete, I wrap the decorated band around each child’s head and staple the ends together.

This project is so simple, but so adorable and the kids have a blast!

Hi, I'm Maria.

I’m a former kindergarten teacher turned work-from-home mom. I still love sharing ideas and resources to make teaching easier, so you can focus on what really matters in the classroom. When I’m not working on the blog, you’ll find me chasing kids around the house with a cold cup of coffee in my hand (some things never change even once you’re out of the classroom!)
