Give me a “C”! Give me an “O”! Give me an “N”! Wow, “constitution” is a longer word than you think. But, “U” get the point. Mark your calendars now for Monday, February 19, 2018 from 12:00-3:00 p.m. and join the Museum for its sixth Presidents’ Day Open House: Constitution U. Grab a college-ruled notebook and a freshly sharpened pencil, and come prepared to be schooled in all things constitutional!
Do you have a strong constitution? Or is it weak? If Article II of the Constitution established the executive branch of government in 1787, how might Article 2.0 read differently in 2018? Reflect on 200 years of Illinois history since the first signing of our state’s constitution two centuries ago. Cast your vote for the coach (err…president) who will lead your team to victory. Redefine the meaning of the phrase “daily constitutional.” Do all this and more to graduate with honors from Constitution “U”!
Family-friendly activities will include a mock election, crafts, games, and some sweet treats to help celebrate the many ways that “we, the people of the United States of America” have made, and will continue to make, the Constitution a document of the people. Remember, there are many “I”s in “constitution,” but only one “U”!
Study up, and we will see you in February! This event is free and open to the public. All ages are invited to attend.
