The Declaration of Independence

After identifying the key principles at the heart of the Declaration of Independence (consent of the governed, representative government, limited government, the social contract, the basic rights of humankind, the ideal of equality among the people of the world), groups create a children’s version of the Declaration of Independence accessible to third graders. First, they craft a one-page summary of their section of the document. Next, using large, simple text, they illustrate their page with images and symbols appropriate for their audience. The pages are then assembled into a children’s book on the Declaration.
