Constitution Day is an American federal observance that recognizes the adoption of the US Constitution and those that have become US citizens. It is observed on September 17th, the day in 1787 when the delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the document in Philadelphia. What a perfect time to have some lessons about the Constitution and the people who had a part in its creation!
