If you haven’t heard of the song “It’s Too Late to Apologize”, the Declaration of Independence version, then you’re in for a real treat! Soomo Publishing created a parody of the original song, “Apologize” by OneRepublic. The parody features Thomas Jefferson as the star singing the song about the Declaration of Independence with appearances from King George III, Benjamin Franklin, and other patriots from the time period. The music video is professionally done and will have your students wanting to watch it repeatedly!
The following worksheet was created to accompany the song so students can make connections about what they need to know about the Declaration of Independence. On the left side of worksheet, the lyrics are listed. Then there are guiding questions on the right side. Also included are instructional tips with a safe share video link and an answer key.
This worksheet was created for a 4th grade audience but it can be used for middle school and possibly high school. This activity correlates with Virginia Studies SOL VS.5a.
