    Studies show that hands-on learning is one of the best methods for teaching complex concepts to kids. This pocket-sized booklet includes the complete text of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, along with 24 perforated Q&A flashcards on the contents of the Constitution. A single class set includes 25 copies of the Liberty Day Institute booklet.

    What Teachers Are Saying

    “Absolutely! Fifth grade students love to learn in what I like to call ‘camouflage.’ They don’t realize they’re learning something new when it’s presented in a non-threatening, fun way. The kids loved the cards because we played a game [with them].” – Teri Bedford, Texas
    "I received about six emails on Monday morning...I will just paraphrase them here: 'My child came home from school eager to see how much my husband and I knew about the government. He decided to quiz us right at the table. I am embarrassed to admit that I knew much less than I should have known about our Constitution....He reveled in the fact that he knew so much more than I did.'" – Adrian Neibauer, Colorado
    “I found the US Constitution booklets to be very helpful and interesting to the students. They felt ownership and pride as they used them as their own. They especially liked the cards as they quizzed themselves and their peers. Thank you!” – Miranda Saenz, New Mexico
    “They were great! It put the direct assessment in their hands and the page numbers where they could go back and look up the answers.” – Rhonda Crawford, Tennessee
    “It is very nice to have the booklets, cards, and review quiz as a resource. I will definitely use them again when I teach the Revolutionary War.” – Jennifer Murrill, Texas
    “It gave the students reference materials to refer to during our exploration of early U.S. government and the Constitution. The cards were great for partner quizzing.” – Erik Lindholm, Colorado
