Constitution Is a Big Word
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Amy followed her family. They were on vacation. They were on a history vacation. They were learning about America.
 
2     Today they were seeing an old building. It was more than 250 years old.
 
3     "What is this place, Dad?" asked Amy as they stood outside.
 
4     "It is called Independence Hall," said Dad. "Our Constitution was made here. It was written more than 200 years ago."
 
5     "Is it still used today?" asked Amy.
 
6     "Yes," said Mom. "We use it all the time. It tells our government what to do."
 
7     "You mean it is like a rule book?" asked Amy.
 
8     Mom and Dad nodded their heads.
 
9     "Does every country have one?" asked Amy.
 
10     Dad shook his head. "I do not think every country does. Some do not have good ones."
