It’s only four pages long, but the U.S. Constitution is among the most influential and important documents in the history of the world.
Let your students experience the 160,000-square-foot National Constitution Center which explores and explains this amazing document through high-tech exhibits, artifacts, and interactive displays. The Kimmel Theater, a 350-seat star-shaped theater, features “Freedom Rising,” a multimedia production combining film, a live actor and video projection on a 360° screen to tell the stirring story of “We the people.”
Students can then experience it for themselves by donning judicial robes to render their opinion on key Supreme Court cases, then take the Presidential oath of office. In Signers’ Hall, there are life-size bronze figures of the Constitution’s signers and dissenters, students can choose to sign or dissent and view one of the rare original public copies of the Constitution.
