September 17th is Constitution Day! Mrs. Burgess (enrichment specialist) and I have collaborated on an art activity for our 4th and 5th graders. We read “We The Kids” by David Catrow, an awesome illustrator and writer. We checked out images of the Constitution from the National Archives and we learned about Jacob Shallus the clerk who was paid $30 to prepare the document.
Finally, we tried our hand at pen and ink. It was much harder than we thought!
