We started discussing the Declaration of Independence! We discussed the three basic rights this document gave to men, the reasons why it was written as well as the “grievances” Thomas Jefferson had against King George III. Ms. Lynam will be in tomorrow to watch a fun lesson I have planned on the Declaration of Independence! Tonight for homework, the students need to SKIM through the Declaration of Independence and highlight 10 words they are unsure of. They do not need to write down anything or find the definitions. We will discuss this in class tomorrow. Below is a video of The Declaration being read!
