      This website is provided by the National Archives as an "online exhibit" allowing teachers to provide a simulated in person walk through of the Constitution exhibit.  While it does not list sources on the main page, linked articles include bibliographic notes, and the page is provided by the U.S. Government's National Archives, which in itself is a credible source.

      I could use this site during a civics course, especially for the specialized study of the constitution.  I could print an oversized hi-res image to have children touch and interact with, as well as the online availability allows them to continue research on their own.

      Based on the criteria from UC Berkeley, I find this site both incredibly useful, and also a great resource for any social studies teacher covering the US Constitution.   It is both credible, engaging, and ample in it's supplementary information regarding the constitution.

      In addition to being a map nerd, I am a Constitution nerd, and this site is awesome.

      At the top of this home page are various boxes that say "Preamble," "Article I," etc. If you click any of these, what comes up is that section of the Constitution. If you hover over a section of the text, a portion will be highlighted. If you click on that section, that bit of text will be explained below.
