Preparing for "I Signed the Constitution"


Yesterday, assembled the USCIS 100 hall-cards.


  • We printed out each of the USCIS 100 questions on separate white sheets of 8.5x11" paper.

  • We printed out all the USCIS 100 answers on separate white sheets of 8.5x11" paper.We used a paper cutter to cut the questions and answers down to 8.5x5.5" rectangles.

  • We folded a 9x11" pieces of Federal Blue construction paper in half.

  • We used a glue stick to glue the corners of the questions on the outside of the hall card.

  • We used a glue stick to glue the corners of the answers on the inside of the hall card.
Today we will:

  • Study the Constitution.

  • Put four loops of blue sticky-tape on the back of the hall cards and hung them up in four rows of twenty-five cards.

  • Make hall cards for the USCIS 96. We will use red construction paper.

  • Un-roll the big Constitution and parchment paper.

  • Sharpen the quills and test the ink.

  • Set up tables in the hallway.

Tomorrow we will

  • Study the Constitution.

  • Ask the new citizens to talk about studying for citizenship and what has happened after they became citizens.

  • We will assign classmates to help people sign the Constitution and give each student a copy.

  • Each class will come and sign the Constitution.

  • Eat cake!
