How old were your kids when they learned the preamble to the constitution?
my kids were between 3-5th grade. I taught several it at the same time. I taught my kids the 50 states and their capitals one year then the preamble the next along with the ammendments.
Okay thanks ladies! We've not really studied it yet, my daughter is 12. We've gone over it a couple of times, but I haven't made her memorize it or anything of that nature. I didn't learn it until I was in 10th grade so I never thought of really covering it until highschool. One of my sister's kids knows it and he is younger than my daughter. It kinda made me feel like we might be behind a little.
Schoolhouse Rock has a preamble song. It's really good. It leaves out one part I think so you might want to point that out - I think It says "We the people" and leaves out 'of the United States,' but the rest is the same. All of my kids know that song but they don't really know/understand what the constitution is about, fully.
