GILBERT, Ariz. -- Gilbert is hosting the nation's largest event celebrating Constitution Week and East Valley elementary school students are benefiting.

Islands Elementary School students are learning about the Constitution and the 13 regional colonies from a guest speaker -- Caesar Rodney.

"Today we have a guest speaker who is portraying Caesar Rodney, one of the Founding Fathers," said Rob Soper, fifth-grade teacher at Islands Elementary School. "The guest speaker is telling them about the creation of the Constitution and it's really nice because it kind of brings it to life for the students."

Constitution Week will continue until Sept. 24.
