BROWN ELEMENTARY 5TH GRADERS STUDY CONSTITUTION
We the People came alive to Brown Elementary's 5th graders. After studying the Constitution, Mrs. Nero's students wrote original plays about the events leading up to and the actual writing of the Constitution of the United States. By combining history with writing skills and the structure of plays, students experienced how all these subjects come together. Making the stage, props and even a few costumes ignited their creativity. Their performances were wonderful, and together, they all proudly recited the Preamble to the Constitution.
