By the time they reach high school, students know that the United States was once a British colony. However, not all of them understand that seemingly American concepts, like a Constitution, Bill of Rights and the Rule of Law, all have their origins in the British Isles.
Tracing Britain's evolution from absolutism to constitutional monarchy, this two-part worksheet includes historic notables such as: Charles I, Magna Carta and the Glorious Revolution. It will help deepen students' understanding of how the United States' democratic institutions arose out of the English Civil War.
Perfect as a classroom activity, homework assignment or review activity! Part I is an eleven-question "Match-'Em" exercise; Part II contains three short answer questions.
