This is a 6-page Word file that supports my Powerpoint product "NY GRADE 5 COMMON CORE ELA MODULE 1 DECLARATION OF DEPENDENCE/UDHR TIE-IN PPT". Students will be doing a "close read" of the "Declaration of Dependence". They will sketch their interpretations of each of the 4 sections of the "Declaration of Dependence". They will also view the supportive Powerpoint and jot down their "noticings" in a graphic organizer of the 7 black and white slides of children engaged in the cruel reality of child labor and the 5 color slides of modern children engaging in life "as it should be" as supported by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). They will then write an essay using their "noticings" to reflect on the impact that the "Declaration of Dependence" had on child labor practices. Used in conjunction with the Powerpoint file mentioned below, this activity will excite and enlighten your students. The connections my students made to the UDHR were absolutely fantastic!
