Last week we began looking at the Articles of Confederation, our first constitution. We examined why the Articles failed as our first plan of government. This week, we will be looking at the Constitutional Convention, the compromises made during the convention, and the new Constitution created by our founding fathers.
A Note About Interactive Notebooks:
We will be creating Interactive Notebooks all year. I introduced the Notebooks to the students within the first days of school. This notebook is a great source of guidance when studying for tests. What students will create is their own version of a fifth grade text containing what they have learned and explored throughout the year. Notebooks will go home with all students at the end of the school year.
