From King to Constitution: “Get Off Our Backs!”-Lesson Plan
Students will learn how the American colonists became used to governing themselves and ultimately declared independence from Britain in order to establish their own government. As a foundation for understanding why the new Americans chose the structure contained in our Constitution, students explore other types of government the colonists could have chosen. This lesson feeds into the lesson “Wanted: A ‘Just Right’ Government,” but may be taught independently.
