This cycle of study is curriculum that covers the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. There are a lot of activities that have been tested in the classroom and found to be very useful, hands on, and fun for students to learn. Which is great to see, when dealing with subject matter that is often dry and difficult to understand. Activities in this would be great for any grade level that the Constitution is taught.
