YORKTOWN, N.Y. – Michael Sica's and Debra Lewis’ seventh-grade Social Studies classes in Mildred E. Strang Middle School have been studying the U.S. Constitution and Revolutionary War era for the past month.
Students are making a connection to the past and future through readings in their textbooks, debates about the Boston Massacre, and the analysis of important documents.
Each of the students has learned that the Founding Fathers of our country were real people who not only disagreed with each other, but also shared a passion for everyone to have freedom.
Lewis contacted U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey’s office, which provided pocket-size Constitutions for the students.
“We are very excited as we approach the development of the Constitution to have our own pocket copies of this most important document right at hand, thanks to Congresswoman Lowey, ” Lewis said
“I’m thrilled these seventh-graders at Strang Middle School are excited to learn about the events that led to our nation’s founding, and it’s my pleasure to provide pocket copies of the Constitution for a hands-on experience,” Lowey said.
