Fifth-grade students in Terri Cottell and Nicole Mulhearn’s class at Rushmore Avenue School celebrated Constitution Day on Wednesday, Sept. 17. Through teaching about the Preamble of the Constitution, the teachers seized the opportunity to introduce complex vocabulary and integrate ELA, social studies and character education into their classroom. After reviewing a short video and reading a book, students were tasked with explaining and illustrating key phrases from the Preamble.
