U.S. Government for Second Graders: Home

We the People...

This is the Preamble to the United States Constitution.  They are also embedded in the introduction video.  Read the Preamble and discuss its meaning with other users of this LibGuide.  Why do you think it was important to add this to the Constitution?  What does this Preamble mean to you?  What do you think it means?


"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."


This LibGuide is geared for my second grade social studies class.  Watch the Introduction video to activate student's prior knowledge and begin your discussion.  Then, allow students to navigate through the sites.  They will not only learn, but they will have fun!
