His Life and Times with 21 Activities Brandon Marie Miller • Co-op available • Part of the For Kids series Drawing heavily from the original letters and papers of Thomas Jefferson and his contemporaries, this resource chronicles the world of the Founding Father who wrote the Declaration of Independence. From his early critiques of the colonial policies of Great Britain and King George III to his governmental roles as the first secretary of state, the minister to France, and the third president of the United States, Jefferson’s groundbreaking achievements are described in historical context. The contradictions in Jefferson’s character—most notably the fact that he owned 600 slaves in his lifetime despite penning the immortal phrase “all men are created equal”—are also explored, giving kids a full picture of this skilled politician. Creative activities that invite children to experience Jefferson’s colonial America include designing a Palladian window, building a simple microscope, painting a “buffalo robe,” and dancing a reel.
