This is a two-part project. Make sure that you turn in both parts at the same time.
This is your first unit project of the course. The lessons of this unit will prepare you for this unit project. As you complete the lessons in this unit, make sure to pay attention to what caused the former colonists to write the US Constitution the way they did. Read the instructions on how to complete this project and then submit it.
Before you begin your project, consider the following:
- What was the Enlightenment?
- What were the biggest challenges in implementing the Constitution?
- What ideals influenced the creation and structure of the Constitution?
Part One- Create a storyboard of the formation of the US Constitution. You may use the website linked below to create your storyboard, but do not forget to save it and submit it. You should have at least six frames in your storyboard with at least 150-200 words total.
You can use either Storyboard That, a free service that will help you create your storyboard, or you may create it as a series of drawings or use a presentation program. If you use Storyboard That, choose the option that allows you to make two rows of three frames each, so that the two rows are on top of each other. This will allow you to make the storyboard for free.
Part Two- After you have created your storyboard, create a story book for 5th graders explaining the various parts of the US Constitution. You may create your story book in a series of written text, drawings, or cartoons. The purpose of this project is for you to apply your knowledge and understanding of the US Constitution and be able to thoroughly explain it. You can create your story book however you wish within reason, but the text of it must be at least 400 words total.
You must use at least 2 credible sources other than your textbook and provide a Works Cited page with your sources. Failure to include a Works Cited page will result in a rejected assignment.
