Live Tour of the National Archives and Up Close Look at the Constitution
September 17 at 1:00PM ET
Join David Ferriero, Archivist of the United States, on a tour of the National Archives and a short lesson about the Constitution.
Constitution Day provides a great opportunity for classrooms across the country to learn about the document, as well as the National Archives. Students will take a short tour of the National Archives, learn about their document collection, and how historians are actively using primary source documents in their research. Students will also learn about the Constitution through a document analysis strategy that reinforces the skills needed to read, write, and think like a scholar.
