The 7 Principles of the Constitution

Today in class we discussed the 7 principles of the Constitution.  These are the founding beliefs and ideas that were built into our government.  We first discussed the meaning of a "constitution" as well as "democracy" before digging into these principles.  Below you can see what we took a look at in class:

We will move on to our first 1-4 assessment of the year tomorrow dealing with checks and balances and separation of powers!  Let's make sure we all start on the right foot!

-Mr. J.
