Freaky Friday

Freaky Friday was so much fun...we decided to keep it around!

For this Friday, we would like to giveaway a copy of  Constitution Celebration Download N Go - just in time for Constitution Day - September 17th.

 The most important document written in the history of our country has to be the Constitution, and it is so important for children to understand its history as well as its content. to create it! As your child begins Constitution Celebration, he will learn just how hard the people worked to create it!  From May 25 to September 17, 1787, they worked long, hot hours in the high heat of summer to accomplish what they set out to do—save the Union and unite the thirteen colonies that had their differences.

There was no air conditioning. The doors to the room were kept closed and under guard. The thick, heavy curtains were kept drawn over tightly closed windows to keep the proceedings a secret. In those days, men wore powdered wigs and hot wool clothes, and deodorant wasn’t in use yet. It was a hot and smelly time, but these men were convinced of the importance of this gathering. Many people had lost their lives to secure the freedom of these colonies, and they were off to a shaky start. They had to act to unite, or they risked losing their freedom and their new country. They could not fail. And yet, they could not agree on everything—there were fierce disagreements and difficult compromises. But these men valued their newly secured freedom, and they were determined to come up with a document that would establish a working
and successful government, and that is exactly what they did. “We the People” opened our Constitution, and they succeeded in designing a form of government that has worked well.
