Educators looking to celebrate Constitution Day on September 17 in their classrooms (or other important dates in American history) should be sure to check out the array of educational resources provided by the National Constitution Center. Here, visitors will find a large collection of resources with options for a variety of age groups. Students and general audiences alike have several interactive features to explore. In addition to the Interactive Constitution (featured in the 10-10-2014 Scout Report), other interactives focus on topics like how the Bill of Rights was written, how the rights laid out in the US Constitution compare to those established in other countries around the world, and digitized early drafts of the Constitution as it was being developed. Other notable features include numerous lesson plans for K-12 classrooms as well as fun craft activities that would be appropriate for both classrooms and families. These resources, as well as the many others available here, can be searched by fields such as keyword, subject, grade level, and educational standards. Located in Philadelphia, the National Constitution Center has been educating visitors about the US Constitution online since 1998 and in person since 2003.
