The U.S. Constitution is getting a modern look at Monfort Elementary.
Students are using their whiteboard technology to dive a bit deeper into the
225-year old document.
Lessons on the constitution are taught throughout Utica Community Schools
annually on what is nationally known as Constitution Day - a federal observance
set aside to celebrate the anniversary of the signing on September 17, 1787.
At Monfort, the students used a program call "True Flix" for a multi-media
lesson on the constitution, complete with texts, movies, interactive software
and quizzes and vocabulary.
"It was fun," said fifth-grader Austin Clark of the lesson. "We learned who
wrote it, how it was made, and who was involved in the group that adopted it."
Added classmate Josh Richman: "This was a fun way to study it. I learned a
lot of things about it I didn't know before."
