Recently, my school has started the routine of reciting the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence in class. As a 4th grade teacher, I realized that my students probably don't understand what many of those big words they're reading really mean.
This sheet goes with a matching Powerpoint presentation that includes all of these vocabulary words and their definitions. It can be found here
