Lesson Plan

Referenda Fair: Hold a Constitutional Convention

Levels: Middle School, High School

Unit: Constitutional Referenda, The Constitution

The Founding Fathers believed that the Constitution would need to be revised and reworked to meet the changing needs of the country. They would be surprised to know that there hasn't been another Constitutional Convention despite over two hundred years of history. This lesson plan guides students through an analysis of issues that might be discussed if a Constitutional Convention were held today. Students will create a referendum fair and inform students, community members, and others about the possibility of Constitutional Reform. This activity pairs with YLI's Democracy Corps program and offers students an opportunity to participate in a service learning project.
