September 17-23: Constitution Week

Each year, on September 17, Americans celebrate Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. In addition, September 17-23 is also recognized as Constitution Week. During this time, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services encourages Americans to reflect on the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and what it means to be a U.S. citizen.

The USCIS website provides resources for educators and others, including lesson plans and activities for instructors preparing students for U.S. citizenship, themed resources for classroom use and curriculum development and instructional materials.
