During the distance learning program, the students participated in an interactive meeting with Katie Munn, a representative from the National Archives, to take a closer look at these primary source documents. They discussed how the documents are relevant to the students’ lives today and our students asked many well-informed, probing questions to gather more information.

“We learned so much about the impact of the U.S. Constitution on the daily lives of American citizens,” said fifth-grade teacher Marissa Traina.
