In this interactive digital lesson, students explore the background of the Declaration of Independence as well as the document itself. They analyze each part of the Declaration, and determine the modern meaning.
Students will have the opportunity to engage, explore, explain, apply, share, reflect, and extend their understanding as 21st century learners. They will listen to a break-up song parody of the Declaration of Independence, explore a variety of digital resources, and analyze primary sources using their new knowledge. Students will have the opportunity to apply their learning by choosing between one of four final activities.
