Constitution Day Virtual Field Trip

Go Behind the Scenes with the Founders
at the Library of Congress

In honor of Constitution Day, Discovery Education is taking you behind-the-scenes at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.

Meet the new Libarian of Congress, take a tour of the largest library in the world, and get a candid look into the minds that founded our country.

  • What was George Washington really thinking about during the Constitutional Convention?
  • What were Alexander Hamilton's parting sentiments to his wife, Eliza, before his fatal duel with Aaron Burr?
  • What did Thomas Jefferson try to cover up in his original draft of the Declaration of Independence, and how did scientists at the Library of Congress uncover the truth?

Students at Boyd E. Smith Elementary are using Flocabulary in Mrs. Dunn and Mrs. Bothe's classrooms to reinforce concepts, introduce or close a lesson, and engage students! Mrs. Dunn shared, "the kids love the videos and will sing right along with them. Flocabulary includes quizzes with read and response questions that the student can complete for each video. When the student finishes these, Flocabulary grades them and provides immediate feedback to the students! It is a great extension for many lessons."
