We think of our Constitution as the painstakingly designed blueprint drawn up by, in Thomas Jefferson's words, an "assembly of demigods" who laid the foundation for the sturdiest republic ever created. The truth is, it was no blueprint at all but an Etch A Sketch, a haphazard series of blunders, shaken clean and redrawn countless times during a summer of petty debates, drunken ramblings, and desperate compromise—as much the product of an "assembly of demigods" as a confederacy of dunces.

The Life of a Tree
In this interactive activity adapted from the National Arbor Day Foundation, explore the intricate life of a tree. The trunk of a tree functions as both a supporting structure and a pathway, transporting food down from the photosynthesizing leaves and conducting water and minerals up from the roots. Look inside a tree to learn about the xylem, cambium, and phloem, and to see how the tree's rings provide a record of the environmental factors that affected its growth and life cycle.
