The week featuring Constitution Day offered Shafer Middle School teacher Janine Daniels the perfect opportunity to start her lesson on the document that laid out the structure of the United States.
Before she jumped into the topic, Daniels took some time to find out how much the students in her 8th grade humanities class actually knew.
Instead of keeping them in the classroom, Daniels decided to have some fun and broke out the sidewalk chalk. The kids divided into four groups and illustrated different parts of the Constitution on the middle school's parking lot.
"This gives the students a chance to brainstorm together and reflect on the Constitution's importance," said Daniels.
The activity played like Pictionary, as each group looked at the others' and deciphered the images and their meanings. Afterwards, the students returned to the classroom to continue the lesson.
