Some of you will remember Jeff Hymas from In the Constitution (we talked about a book of his in an earlier post HERE). He's come to Omaha a few times for the annual conference (we’ve tried to get him to come out every year but our schedules have conflicted). He is a great teacher of the Constitution; he makes it come alive for students. My kids love his stuff and parents at the conferences love how passionate and practical he is when teaching the principles of freedom found right in the Constitution.
He has a FREE Constitution curriculum I'm excited to share with you. It’s called Five Clauses Everyone Should Know. His curriculum consists of six, 20-minute videos that do all the work for you. They have analogies, games, mnemonic devices and each video has an age-specific quiz to make sure the kids are understanding the principles - not just the trivia - of the Constitution. What’s great about these quizzes is that it gets children and their parents talking about the principles of freedom in the Constitution. I've watched a few of the videos with my kids and it has sparked some great conversations both at the time, and later as we come across current events and situations that apply to that principle. (e.g. "Remember how Jeff explained the principle of democracy vs republic in the videos? Remember how the kids voted to share the candy? That's why voting alone doesn't always work" etc.)
Anyway, I would highly recommend that you get this Constitution curriculum. It's perfect to do during the summer months but also would be great to do with co-ops, groups or just your family during the school year. Once again, it’s available HERE. It’s fun, engaging, principle-based - and it’s free!
