Georgia's State Schools Superintendent is helping some Cook County students understand the importance of the U.S. Constitution.

Richard Woods was at Cook County Elementary School Thursday to talk to some of the students about what the constitution is. It was one of several schools he visited around the state Thursday for constitution day.

Woods told the students that understanding the constitution is extremely important.

"You can say it's the rule book for the United States of America. It lets us know what we can and can't do. It lets the government know what are its responsibilities," Woods explained.

Woods also delivered booklets to the school which the students will use this semester to study the constitution. He said Georgia is the first state to issue the booklets to students.
