Independence Hall Now and Then

Read Write Think Interactive Venn Diagram.


Lesson:  Compare and Contrast Life in the 1770's  and Now:  The teacher and students will discuss how you think Independence Hall and the people might be alike or different from the 1770's and now. NOTE: This NEEDS to be modeled by the teacher before it is an assignment.  The directions are listed if the children have problems.

  • Think about the clothes worn now and long ago.
  • Think about how people communicated now and long ago.
  • Think about how the Patriots felt at that time.  Were they proud when the Constitution was signed?  Are people today proud of the United States?
