Constitution Day

Thursday September 17 is Consitution Day and Citizenship Day.  We are celebrating the 222nd anniversay of the adoption of the U.S. Constitution by the Contential Congress in 1987.  It took adoption by 9 states for the Constitution to become law, which happened by June of 1988.  

Check out our website for some fun videos about the Constitution, as well as links to other resources: CEA webiste

Check out this link to the U.S. Department of Defense website that explains the law passed by Congress earlier this decade requiring federal agencies and federally funded schools to teach about the Constitution this time of year.  From the DoD website you can access a video of former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor explaining the meaning of the Constitution. http://constitutionday.cpms.osd.mil/
