5th Grade NYS Learning Standard CITIZENSHIP AND CIVIC LIFE: Constitutions, rules, and laws are developed in democratic societies in order to maintain order, provide security, and protect individual rights. This is an example of a "classroom constitution" made together as a class. It allows your students to become more comfortable as a learning community. Also students are more inclined to follow and not break their own rules rather than rules that the teacher sets.

"Create a classroom ​constitution or ​bill of rights." Work as a class to create a classroom constitution or ​bill of rights. Have students work together to brainstorm their most important guidelines for a successful learning community. Once students have decided on the five or six most important points, write them in a pledge form on posterboard. Have all students sign the pledge and hang it on the wall where the students can see it."…

Back to school activities: Choose 1 of 4 social contract posters, glue it on construction paper and then glue it to the center of a piece of tag board. Trace children's hands and frame their contract. Kiddos sign their name on their print. For extra pizzazz, when school pix come back, copy, cut & glue one to their hand.
