In 2005, the U.S. Congress passed a law requiring all educational institutions, who receive federal funds, to present programs celebrating September 17 as Constitution Day. Teachers can find a number of lessons and other resources on line at the Constitution Center’s web site. Look on the left of the home page for Constitution Day.
