The second product in the bundle is entitled “Britain vs. America: What Led to the Declaration of Independence?” Student Study Guide & Answer Key.
It meets the following Florida benchmark SS.7.C.1.3 Describe how English policies and responses to colonial concerns led to the writing of the Declaration of Independence.
The students will understand how the English policies and responses to colonial concerns led to the writing of the Declaration of Independence.
• Why Britain passed new laws and taxes on its American colonies in the 1760s and 1770s
• Why colonists responded to the changes with defiance and rebellion
• Why Britain’s harsh responses led to war-and the colonies’ Declaration of Independence
The product is a Student Study Guide with a Guided Notes Activity Worksheet including a Teacher Answer Key. The Student Study Guide with the Guided Notes Activity Worksheet references the Florida Students educational resources Tutorial: Britain vs. America: What Led to the Declaration of Independence?
If you do not have a computer for each student, you can present the tutorial class activity completing each activity as you progress through the tutorial. If you have a smartboard, students can complete the activity at their seat, individually or with partners, and then come to the smartboard to present the answer. If you have computers or a laptop for each student, students can complete the tutorial and add answers as they progress through the tutorial at their own pace. Either way, students can then use the worksheet as a study guide for a quiz or the End of Course Exam.
