This is the note sheet that I am using with students in my 7th grade US history classes to take quick notes on both Enlightenment Thinkers and the Founding Fathers. Students will find this sheet helpful when they are completing the Declaration of Independence Interactive Notebook activity.
To help keep this topic engaging, I used living portraits that I downloaded from other's accounts! The kids loved it because it reminded them of Harry Potter.
Included are sheets with and without lines to help differentiate based upon student needs.
