Exploring The Declaration of Independence at Oak Hammock K-8

Students in Mr. Sparacio’s 7th Grade Civics class took an interactive approach to learn about the Declaration of Independence.   Students watched a parody music video, “It’s Too Late to Apologize Declaration” as they created the Ultimate Break Up Letter to King George the III annotated to the song’s lyrics.  The students were engaged in their learning while analyzing the ideas and complaints set forth in the Declaration of Independence.  They were challenged to work collaboratively to describe how English policies and responses to colonial concerns led to the writing of the Declaration of Independence.
