5th Grade Declares Independence!

5th grade declared their independence from something in their life this week in the library. We reviewed the purpose and context of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson and signed by the Continental Congress.  Then we read what the Declaration of Independence says in modern English.  Then we wrote our own declarations! Students liberated themselves with lots of good reasons on why they should not have to babysit younger siblings, limit their video game time, move to another school, or eat foods they don't like.  One student even wrote her declaration from her dog's perspective!
