With the July 4th holiday coming up fast, we thought it would be a good time to remind adults to reacquaint yourself with the United States Declaration of Independence. Many people learned about it in school at some point but you know the old saying, “out of site, out of mind.” We all like having the day off work, the celebrations, the extra family time but are you passing along the meaning or history related to the day?
To get into the spirit of the holiday and teach your children about it, you may want to check out these resources and be sure to pass them along to others.
- Declaration of Independence – free photos and transcripts.
- Freedom Documents – Information about the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, and Bill of Rights.
- Signers of the Declaration of Independence – Find out more about the men who signed the document.
- Various 4th of July resources – Info and activities.
