Thomas Jefferson is probably best known as the author of the Declaration of Independence. Yet, he was also the third President of the United States, founder of the University of Virginia, architect, farmer, musician, scholar and, perhaps most important, America’s foremost spokesman of human rights. This unit presents the life and works of this important American statesman and philosopher. The DVD includes a printable teacher guide featuring reproducible handouts, activities, exercises, vocabulary words, and other related materials. Recommended for grades 4-10. 16 minutes.
