Investigative lesson to build student inquiry.
Keep in mind assembly required (cut outs for each student! Students can do part of this but you will need to cut out strips)
This lesson breaks down the Declaration of Independence through 2 activities:
-Identifying the different sections of the Declaration of Independence
-Analyzing the meaning of important excerpts
This lesson is scaffolded for students who struggle with analyzing a primary source text or summarizing on their own.
Students will find matching analyses and paste it into correct location.
Very engaging powerpoint includes an animated scroll that unfolds to reveal notes, embedded video clip, timer, sounds and more!
Graphic Organizer for Analysis is easy for students to understand and is provided in my investigative notes style or separately, to use as you choose.
Answer key provided as well as embedded in powerpoint (reveals answers as you go over each part of notes)
I have taught the Declaration of Independence in a variety of ways and this is the most student-friendly version I have developed! And it can be taught in one class period!
