POLS 105G: American Constitutional Law: Just for Fun

This guide will help you find information about the United States Constitution and its amendments, including primary sources.

Sing Along with History

The Schoolhouse Rock cartoon series ran on Saturday morning television back in the 1970s and 1980s. Each little video used clever song lyrics and catchy tunes to teach an educational topic in math, language arts, or history. They're still a fun way to learn new concepts quickly. Try a few of these!

I'm Just a Bill -- How a bill works its way through the U.S. Congress to become law.

The Declaration (of Independence) -- Thomas Jefferson's famous document illustrated with July 4th fireworks.

Preamble to the U.S. Constitution -- The actual text of the Preamble set to music. It's a great way to remember the words!

Three Branches of Government -- The relationship between the executive, judiciary, and legislative branches explained, using a three-ring circus for comparison.

19th Amendment -- A quick review of how women won the right to vote in 1920, with a dash of feminist history thrown in.
