CHS AP government students celebrate Constitution Day

Campbellsville High School AP government students celebrated Constitution Day on Monday, Sept. 18, with a party.

 

Constitution Day is an American federal observance recognizing the adoption of the United States Constitution. It is observed each year on Sept. 17, for the day in 1787 that delegates signed the Constitution.

 

Students in Susan Dabney’s class are learning about the Constitution and different types of federalism, which is the division of power between federal and state governments.

 

During their party, students ate a layer cake, which represented dual federalism, which is a fixed division of power between levels of government.

 

Students also ate marble cupcakes, which represented cooperative federalism, which is a mix of powers and resources between national, state and local governments.

 

As they ate their snacks, students watched a video about the difference between “layer cake” federalism and “marble cake” federalism.
