Declaration of Independence Ideas

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

We are currently rowing, The Hatmaker's Sign which is a Five in a Row unit. This is a story within a story. It is actually a story by Ben Franklin that he used to encourage Thomas Jefferson as he wrote the Declaration of Independence. Here are some fun online activities about the Declaration...

*Read more about the signers and see their signatures up close. This is helpful to us because I was trying to show the boys the signature of William Williams who is a possible ancestor of ours.

*More detailed bios on the signers.

*Possible learning activities to do.

*The whole text of the Declaration.
