This is a lesson over the Declaration of Independence. It is independent and group activity. The lesson consists of a power-point with embedded links that take them to other files. The files have been included in the PDF file. You will need to make a few adjustments to ensure the links take your student to the correct place.
The power-point has students examining the Declaration, watching a quick video, becoming familiar with the Preamble, the beliefs of the authors, grievances, addressing the grievances and signatures on the Declaration. With each slide of the presentation, students will answer questions on a worksheet. This activity is aligned with standards in Texas (TEKS).
My students were very responsive and engaged with this assignment.
