  • Product Description
  • StandardsNEW

In this fun resource for early US History, students complete a scavenger hunt on the Declaration of Independence to better understand the document, interact with historical text, and turn a boring document into an exciting challenge. Students work in either collaborative teams or individually (I'd recommend teams in middle school) to complete this lesson. There are 32 questions that students will be responsible for hunting down. There are two versions in this purchase to easily allow for differentiation: once provides questions in the order they are in the document and the other is more randomized. You will need to use a copy of the Declaration of Independence - our textbook works perfectly and yours will too!

This resource includes a paper in-class version and a 1:1 Google compatible version to be used in conjunction with Google Classroom. Just follow the included instructions for how to access the Google version, then share the resource through Google or assign via Google Classroom. This will allow students to type directly into document!

This works best as an introduction to the Declaration!

Enjoy!

This Declaration of Independence lesson is included in the two larger bundles to save you big: it is part of my Causes of the American Revolution Unit as well as the Declaration of Independence Bundle.
