For September 1, 2005:

Wow! Just right for the upcoming Constitution and Citizenship Day, Centuries of Citizenship: A Constitutional Timeline--from the National Constitution Center <http://www.constitutioncenter.org>--is a phenomenal presentation spanning years of history. Period music and sounds are provided for each decade. At each stop along the way, you can choose to hear about the era, listen to a Point/Counterpoint, learn facts, and participate in an interactive questionnaire to determine if you could vote during that year.

This is an excellent introduction to key events, so don't miss visiting it! In addition to the timeline, there is an interactive Constitution based on Linda Monk's The Words We Live By that allows students to search by keywords, specific topics, or court case. Detailed explanations are provided along with viewpoints and Supreme Court Updates. This Web site is a program of the Annenberg Center for Education and Outreach and is an excellent source for historical and current Constitutional discussions.

Fly over to Cyberbee http://www.cyberbee.com for more great Web sites, lessons, and activities to use with students.
