Imagine if your child's teacher simplified all the topics covered in elementary school and put them on easy-to-read, laminated charts that fit directly into notebooks and binders. That’s what FlashCharts do! The Declaration of Independence is one of the most important documents in American history, and the date of its approval—July 4, 1776—is considered the birthday of the United States. With this six-page chart, young social studies students can learn all about this nation-changing declaration: how it started, how it lays out American ideals, who wrote and signed it. The chart also includes a timeline that shows what happened when.
