For more information about the Children Discovering Justice Grade Five curriculum, contact Jan Shafer at 617.748.4184 or jshafer@discoveringjustice.org

Solving Problems: The United States Constitution uses the process of writing this founding document to study the various ways groups of people solve problems and examines some of the compromises in the Constitution that were necessary for the document to be approved and adopted by the thirteen states. Discussion questions include: Why did the thirteen colonies need to unite? How do you share power equally? What happens when a solution doesn’t work for everyone? The main text is If You Were There When They Signed the Constitution by Elizabeth Levy. Additional texts include The Bill of Rights in Translation by Amie Jane Leavitt and Yertle the Turtle by Dr. Seuss.
