James Madison, Father of the Constitution. A special presentation.

February 21 @ 10:30 am - 11:45 am EST

Free

James Madison Jr. (March 16, 1751 – June 28, 1836) was an American statesman, lawyer, diplomat, philosopher and Founding Father who served as the fourth president of the United States from 1809 to 1817. He is hailed as the “Father of the Constitution” for his pivotal role in drafting and promoting the Constitution of the United States and the United States Bill of Rights. He co-wrote The Federalist Papers, co-founded the Democratic-Republican Party, and served as the fifth United States secretary of State from 1801 to 1809. At just 5’4″, James Madison was hardly a commanding presence, but that didn’t stop him from shaping American history.

A special Constitution and Bill of Rights Presentation will be held on February 21 in honor of James Madison and in celebration of Presidents Day at the Foundation for American Christian Education. Bring your 4th to 7th grade students (perfect for homeschooling families) and learn how one man helped to shape our nation. There will be a Constitution/Bill of Rights display and interactive activity.

The James Madison event is a live interactive program targeted to students in grades 4-7; however we are flexible if you want to bring older or younger students. Please let us know if you would like to bring your entire class. All are welcome.

Note: The presentation start time is 10:30 am EST and will have an option to view online via live streaming. We will e-mail you the live stream link upon registration.

The presentation is FREE, but you will need to RSVP by calling Karen Finan at 757-488-6601 or e-mailing to Karen@FACE.net. Space is limited, reserve your spot now.
