Teaching Kids the Preamble to the Constitution


Recently I spoke to my granddaughter’s kindergarten class. Her name is Liberty and yes, she was born on the 4th of July. Here she is standing next to me as I teach actions that help us remember the preamble to the Constitution:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

What phrase are we on in this picture? It’s an idea worth contemplating. Read again the stated purposes of the constitution and think about what they mean:

  • In order to form a more perfect Union – Because we want a better country to live in (than what we had before):
  • establish Justice – We will do what is right and be fair to everyone.
  • insure domestic Tranquility – We will be sure there is peace in our land.
