Storyboard Text

  • The Declaration of Independence is a very important piece of History. It was written to show that America didn't want to be part of Great Britain anymore.
  • There were many things that happened before the Declaration was written. It all started like this.
  • Once upon a time, a group of people left their homeland to live in a faraway land ruled by Britain. These people were called Colonists.
  • The colonists loved their new land, but they did not agree with the king's rules and government. They called the king unfair. Eventually, the colonists became angry with the king and fought against him because they wanted to have freedom.
  • In the end, with some help from other people like France, the Americans won the war.
  • Now back to the Deceleration of Independence. It had many passages.
  • Passage 1 says that there are times when people should be able to end the connection with their government. It also says that they should be able to talk about their reasons.
  • Passage 2 says that these reasons that people have should be respected. It also says that these people have rights that should stay with them.
  • Passage 4 explains that if a government becomes powerful and starts hurting people with it's power, that the people should be able to defend themselves from this government or start their own government.
  • Passage 3 says that people should be able to control and protect their rights and the government if the government is not being fair. The government is also made of people.
  • Passage 5 says that the King is an unfair ruler and uses the government to overpower people. who don't want to listen to him.
  • Passage 6 explains how the government is taking away people's rights and don't want to give them back to the people.
  • Passage 7 talks about how the people want to have peace and want things to be fair, but all they get is more problems and more fights.
  • The final passage states that the colonies will fight for their freedom no matter what it takes.
