"Declaration of Independence: Primary Source"
This lesson will help students better understand one of the most important documents of all time: The Declaration of Independence. After becoming familiar with the Declaration from your textbook or another source, students will be given this series of excerpts and questions. Though Thomas Jefferson's Declaration can be difficult to understand for some, this worksheet is a great overall, big-picture, way to study such an important document without becoming overwhelmed. The Declaration is really just a big "break-up letter" from the colonists to the King. After referring to the primary source in our text book, along with the provided discussion questions in this lesson, this has been a concise way for my students to best understand the Declaration of Independence.
