In this lesson, students read 8 excerpts from the Declaration of Independence. For each excerpt, students translate the text and rephrase it into their own, 21st century, words! 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!
Then, students create a simple sketch that shows the meaning of each excerpt! All information is recorded on a graphic organizer! Excellent way to cover the Declaration in a relatively short amount of time! Three different versions (same text) are included to account for different printer settings.
A key is included!
Great common core practice!
