Product Description
This set of lessons takes students from colonial government Pre-Revolution to the ratification of the Constitution. It includes essential vocabulary, a detailed vocabulary key, a chronological slide show, and two tests. I have throw in a three branches chart as lagniappe, which is useful for many social studies courses all term long, as well as the next chronological lesson for civics, the workings of the Constitution.

These resources are meant to be used in conjunction with the primary source documents: The Declarartion, Articles, and Constitution. Document analysis is a key component of Common Core ELA standards that connect to the social studies.

The vocabulary is derived from experience as well as our state curriculum guide for civics and U.S. History. There are terms that I used to take for granted that students understood. This misunderstanding impeded their understanding of critical documents such as the Declaration, Articles, and Constitution.
