How old were your kids when they learned the preamble to the constitution?

My kids are still young.  

I was in third grade, but I only learned it for a fourth-of-July program we put on for the entire marine post we lived on... It was just before the fifty states song.  I have taught my kids the 50 states song... So I may just tell them there's a beginning part if they're interested ;)

Everyone else-where I live now--learned it in middle school.

I never really learned it. We didn't really cover any of that in school, not even when I had a semester of government in high school. It is one of the documents my kids will be studying when they're ready for it, though.

On Constitution Day last year the homeschool group we're a part of hosted an event where everybody went in with something they learned.  My children decided to learn the Preamble in song form, and created their own dance to go with.  I believe they got the idea from a song they found of the preamble online, only they decided it was a horrible beat so they changed the tune a bit.  They're ages 9, 11, 12, and 13.  We took the event as a chance to learn what the preamble means (since some of the verbiage is not commonly used), and we covered the history behind the Constitution.
