This is a bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentations on the Declaration of Independence and a Vocabulary Exercise. Students are to use knowledge gained from the vocabulary assignment to write their own version of the introduction to the Declaration of Independence. Both presentations together number 54 slides. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.
Power point #1 is entitled, Establishing the US Government - The Declaration of Independence and contains 37 slides and covers the following:
The presentation includes steps to create the Declaration, its authors, its contents, the principles, all 27 complaints against the king, the list of the signers by state, the fate of the signers, notable signers, and the printing and distribution of the Declaration.

End of Presentation
Power point #2 is entitled, The Declaration of Independence – Vocabulary Exercise and contains 17 slides and covers the following:
This product is a vocabulary exercise, in power point format, that covers the entire unit on the Declaration of Independence. The presentation covers 10 key words in the Declaration of Independence. The students are provided a list of the 10 vocabulary words within the presentation. Each word is presented on a separate slide and contains the vocabulary word and its common definition.
The students are also provided with the copy of the introduction of the Declaration of Independence within the presentation. The vocabulary words in question are underlined, then included in the list of 10 on a separate slide. Each slide then, contains the vocabulary word and its common definition. To assist the students, I have also included at the bottom of each slide suggestions on other words that could have been used as well.
The goal is to help the students understand the words highlighted so that when asked, they can write their own version of the introduction. Sometimes vocabulary reviews can be a little stiff, so I have highly animated each of the 17 slides. They are also editable so you can feel free to adjust these slides as you need to.
Good luck and have fun with the presentation!
This is one of many bundled presentations I have in my store on ……… Establishing the United States Government.
