Constitution Interactive Notebook Activities
This resource includes 11 interactive notebook activities (with 2 GOOGLE versions, Easy Notes, & Absent Notes!) that will enhance any early US History unit. It is aligned to my Constitution & A New Nation Unit Bundle. Each of the activities focuses on one major aspect of the Constitution and early US history period. Students will better understand each concept as well as have their own record of the information to which they can refer during the unit.

There are SIX options for each Constitution Interactive Notebook activity:
- Traditional- students cut out, glue, and write the information

- Easy Notes- students are given the blank graphic organizer, and they write the information (perfect for when you don’t want cutting & gluing)
- Absent Notes- students are given the already completed graphic organizer page (perfect for absent students)
- Google Slides- students can type the information on the blank graphic organizer (perfect for paperless classrooms)
- Google Slides Drag-and-Drop: students can drag-and-drop text boxes into the blank graphic organizer (perfect for paperless classrooms & a quick activity)
