What Is the Constitution?

This free unit study is a small taste of the BookShark way of learning—reading great books and then talking about them.

It's based on the illustrated children's book What Is the Constitution? by Patricia Brennan Demuth. While it is not included as part of the free offer, you can purchase a copy on the BookShark website. (Or check your public library for a copy.)
