Week of October 31-November 4

Welcome to Normal November!  We've got a lot to cover this week on the Constitution.  We've read about Article I (Legislative Branch) and Article II (Executive Branch) and now we move on to finish the Articles of the Constitution:

-Article III - Judicial Branch & Supreme Court & Jurisdiction
-Article IV - Relations Among the States & Full Faith and Credit Clause
-Article V - How to Amend the Constitution
-Article VI - The Constitution is the Supreme Law of the land and nothing is higher than it!
-Article VII - How to ratify the Constitution...this one is boring sorry!

We'll finish the Articles then dive into the Amendments.  We will learn ALL XXVII Amendments and you will have XVII Amendments on the test to choose twelve and answer...though you do NOT know which twelve, so you might want to learn ALL OF THEM!!!

We should have jumped into the Bill of Rights by the end of the week (the First X Amendments).  Keep up with the Podcasts and BrainPops.  Be Good!
