Treat your students to a different kind of vocabulary lesson with Five Words of Freedom.

This informational text freebie presents the etymologies of 5 words—vote, Congress, Senate, representative, and democracy. Like people, word histories are full of surprises, and these entertaining 5 are no exception.

The package includes CCSS-aligned questions and full answer keys.

Use the ideas in this product to spark discussions about what living in a democracy means. 

Have students make their own personal Words of Freedom list and then do some digging into their histories. Great stuff for reports
