The Constitution in Action

Prepare students to participate in the Constitution-in-Action Lab at the National Archives in Washington, DC, with primary sources and pre-visit activities. 

The learning lab explores how the actions of the Federal Government are based in our Constitution. Participants will take on roles of archivists and researchers completing a very important assignment: providing the President of the United States with real-life examples of our Constitution in action.

Begin preparing students for their lab experience with the Big Ideas of the U.S. Constitution activity. Once you've divided your class into six teams, assign each their specific activity to review their particular portion of the Constitution.
