Storyboard Text

  • Hello, my name is Luke. I´m gonna explain to you why the deceleration of Independence was written.  The deceleration of Independence was written to declare Independence from great Britain. The purpose of it was to announce the separation of Great Britain. 
  • Parliament started to tax the colonists because they felt that after the French & Indian war, the colonists needed to pay for war.
  • Britain was having to much control over the American colonists so they decided to separate from Great Britain to be free.
  • The Seperation
  • The colonists were mad because they thought they should have a say in parliament. 
  • All men are created equally. All people are valuable and/or equal in Gods eye,
  • Life
  • Liberty
  • Three examples of the ¨unalienable rights" are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  The Deceleration states that these three examples have been given to everyone and government are created to protect them.
  • Pursuit of happiness
  • Our rights cannot be taken away. They come from our creator. These rights belong to every individual, not a group of individuals. 
  • Defending Our Rights
  • To defend our rights the Government is made among men. 
  • Getting fair power but from the approval of our people. 
  • Some rights we still have are: -Freedom of speech -to be protected by the law -right to safety -right to education
  • When any type of government becomes destructive to these rights, the people have an option to change it.
  • They also have an option to get rid of it, and start a new one. 
  • The colonists were worried the King George lll was abusing his power. They colonists were also upset because King George lll was limiting their rights. The colonists then believed they had to change their government because King George lll wasn't listing to their concerned. Also since the government wasn't protecting their rights. They decided to declare their Independence so they could have a government that would protect their rights.
