As a wrap-up for our study of the Declaration of Independence, I decided we should write our own declaration. I used this website for some questions to ask the boys. The three of us brainstormed the list of complaints together, and Orion and I did most of the ‘what are you going to do about it’ questions.
Then I sent all our notes and a link to the original text to Orion . ..and he put together the first paragraph and the list and sent it back to me! I did cut the list slightly (to make it fit on a page!) and I wrote the last paragraph.
We think it came out pretty well! Click on the image to see it full size.
