This powerpoint is a thorough look at how our government was established through the act of American colonists breaking away from the rule of King George III.
After teaching history in 5th grade for a couple of years I realized that the founding of our country was a bore to the students. They could care less about the Constitution, Bill or Rights, or Declaration of Independence. That was because it wasn't real to them. They couldn't relate. This powerpoint is told in story format and steps all the way back in time to King George the III and the Revolutionary War and works its way up to the Constitution which is how our government is run now.
It includes the following terms, people, and events:
King George III
French and Indian War
Boston Tea Party
First and Second Continental Congress
Patrick Henry- Give me Liberty or Give me Death
Battle of Lexington and Concord
Declaration of Independence
Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness
Bill of Rights
** Embedded questions, videos and links to documents like Patrick Henry's speech and the Bill of Rights and much more****
