Students read the Declaration of Independence from the Revolutionary War and answer 17 questions (a few are a more like creative tasks). They then analyze 9 images. For 5 images they respond to four prompts and for 4 images they complete a creative task. The answers are included where appropriate and this would be great for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--Which 3 grievances do you think were most important to include and why?
--Which words actually declare the independence of the colonies?
--What is your impression of John Hancock’s signature? How might his fellow patriots have reacted to it?
--Explain the relevance of the Declaration of Independence to our society today.
--If any grievance(s) were not included in the Declaration of Independence do you think the message or tone of the document would be different, why or why not?
--Why do you think life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness were chosen as the stated unalienable rights in the Declaration? Create the scene where you think the founding fathers discussed which rights should and should not be unalienable and why. Your dialogue should include at least 9 exchanges between at least 4 people.
