Practice Memorizing the Preamble
Students will recite the Preamble from memory, word for word, exactly as printed on the U.S. Constitution.
Sing to the song, watch these recitations and play these games to help you.
Green Link #1 - The Preamble Song - Click full screen and watch while you listen. The pictures show the meanings of the lyrics. Notice how the first time through the animations are related to the start of the nation in 1776, while the second time through the animations are updated for more modern times. For example, look at how the uniforms change during the 'provide for the common defense" line from verse 1 to verse 2.
Green Link #7 - Recite this aloud (at home) with the narrator...over and over...and you will be practicing! (In the classroom, just mouth the words so as not to disturb others, please. Thanks!)
