The Constitution of the United States was adopted on September 17, 1787, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Today, public schools incorporate celebrations of the history of the US Constitution. Our image of the week comes to us from the amazing, Certified Educator: Jodie Johnston.

In May of 2005, the United States Department of Education mandated, any educational institution receiving public funding must celebrate Constitution Day, on or around the 17th of September. Jodie’s ThingLink provides a variety of resources to facilitate exploration including:
