In honor of Constitution Day, Teaching with Primary Sources at EIU is showcasing some resources to help you celebrate and educate!  

A Closer Look at the Constitution is an interactive look at the Constitution like you have never seen before. You will be able to get up close and personal with this incredible document from the comfort of your web browser. Zoom into the document to study text with incredible detail. You can also navigate throughout the document and click "hotspots," links that will take you to additional information.

To learn more about the men who signed their names on this historic document be sure to visit Faces Behind the Constitution.  On this page you can learn a little about these 39 men.  

Library of Congress Constitution Resources for Teachers is a list of links and resources to search for inspiration.

One Day in the Creation of the Constitution features images and looks specifically at one day in the creation of the Constitution through the text of the "Report of the Committee of Style" and notes of George Washington. Although a final document is important, we can learn a great deal about people and culture by looking at the creative process and edits such as words that are omitted, substituted and added.
