What Your Child is Learning in Unit 2, "The Constitution of the United States"

He or she will learn how delegates at the Constitutional Convention participated in a gradual and ongoing process of debate, proposal and compromise. Your child will also realize that the outcome was not inevitable--many events along the way could have changed the course of history.
