Constitution Day – organized frenzy and fun

Middle school students tested their knowledge of the U.S. Constitution last week as the clock ticked down the minutes to complete a series of questions held by the Royster teachers.

In a frenzied but organized scavenger hunt designed by the social studies teachers, more than 150 peer groups containing a sixth, seventh and eighth grader attempted to get all the questions answered correctly in less than 30 minutes.

To reduce the chaos, students from each of Royster’s seven “Houses” started at a different teacher’s door. With the first answer filled in, the teams headed down the hall, following the route indicated by the teacher names on their sheet.  At each stop a new question was posed and the team members worked together to get as many correct answers as possible.

Along the way, they answered questions about:

Who is the major department head appointed by the President to deal with foreign countries?

Who was the first President of the United States under the Articles of Confederation?

What are the first 10 Constitutional Amendments called?

If neither the president nor vice president can serve, who fills the office of president?

Under what terms can a person be convicted of treason?

It was a fun and exciting way for the students to test their knowledge of the U.S. Constitution.
