Weblink Wednesday - Independance Day



It's time for Weblink Wednesday! This week I have started looking for resources to use while doing an Independence Day Unit with the kids. Little Man is really interested in the American Revolution, the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin. So... I wanted to make sure that this year we did a bit more than a couple of appropriately themed worksheets. So far I have found the following useful links.

Charters of Freedom - The Declaration, The Constitution and The Bill of Rights at the National Archives. (Want to know what is on the back of the Declaration. Click on the Declaration and scroll down to Our National Treasure. It takes you to a page that will show you.)

Declaration of
Independence
- The Declaration typed out so you can read it.

U.S. History.Org - Some history of the Declaration.

4th of July Independence - History.com's page on the 4th of July.
