Ben’s Guide to the U.S. Government for Kids: The Declaration of Independence

I can’t think of a better way to tie in language arts with the 4th of July than to visit this website where you can read The Declaration of Independence and explore the history behind it. We’ve featured the “Ben’s Guide” website on ClickSchooling previously — and it continues to be one of the best resources for kids about the U.S. government.

When you get to the site you can read The Declaration of Independence and use the links at the bottom of the page to learn more about it and the people who wrote it. There is also a link to a copy of the original document with tons of resources for further exploration — perfect for family members who want to know more.

Once you’ve cogitated upon The Declaration of Independence — look at the menu bar at the top of your screen. You will see that Ben’s Guide breaks down the study of U.S. Government into manageable grade ranges for K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. There is also great info for teachers and parents as well.

Bookmark this site to keep as a reference anytime you want to explore U.S. Government.
