A taste of history

I didn't have time to teach about the Declaration in depth, but this resource allowed me to introduce the topic and give my 5th graders an opportunity to actually read a part of the Declaration and do an engaging activity. I also really like the links to other resources, especially videos.

The Declaration of Independence

It was very good. An excellent product. However, I would have liked to have had a key with the sentence strip activity. The link provided did not have the exact same text as the activity, so I had to search for a different one and provide a key for the students.
