Description

Declaration of Independence & Declaration of the Rights of Man Comparison Reading

This great, higher-level-thinking worksheet presents excerpts from both America's Declaration of Independence and the French Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen. It is excellent to use in an American History class when covering the American Revolution, or in a World History class learning about the French Revolution.

After reading the selections from each document, students fill-in a Venn Diagram of similarities and differences they recognized then answer a set of analysis questions to get them thinking about the key ideas presented in each one. This is great to hit on Common Core skills of analyzing and comparing primary sources!

An editable Google Doc version of the activity and complete answer key are both provided for your convenience.

Thank you for looking!
