Memorizing the Preamble to the Constitution

In lieu of having cable during our children's lifetimes, we've created a little stock pile of DVD's. Out of this collection, the early Andy Griffiths are hands-down our favorites. And here's a scene I found on You Tube that illustrates why. In this episode titled Andy Discovers America from The Andy Griffith Show - The Complete Third Season, Barney Fife "shows off" his ability to recall what he learned in his 8th grade history class. This is a MUST SEE for any child having to memorize the preamble to the constitution. Classic!

  1. How funny! We were just studying the Constitution and I posted that same clip. My husband loves this show & my daughter has watched lots of episodes. It is such a wonderful show!
