With the 4th of July just around the corner, it seems like a great time to offer up my Declaration of Independence Freebie again. This freebie is a special project compiled from the Modern History Portfolio “classic” and the Modern History Portfolio Junior. Notebooking activities promote observation and analysis, and include notetaking, outlining, vocabulary, Latin root words, copywork, and creative lettering.
The Declaration of Independence mini unit and downloadable file in pdf, will produce a single fold, three-sided booklet, for each of three levels; approximately K – 2nd grade, 3rd – 4th grade, and 5th – 8th grade. But, of course, mix and match as is appropriate for your child or children. After reading aloud about the Declaration of Independence from various sources, complete 3 of the components per booklet.
Get your Freebie, and explore this foundational document.
NOTE: Watch your inbox for the link to this file.
Following are some recommended books. The Cornerstones of Freedom Declaration of Independence book, plus The Declaration of Independence, by Sam Fink, will be most useful. If you do want to complete the additional BONUS materials on the Background to the Revolutionary War, consider tracking down George vs. George, and the “If You Lived… book. Both are very good.
