Park Curriculum Materials
Students step into the past as they become familiar with daily life in a Maryland home in the late 1700s and learn about Thomas Stone as a husband, father, farmer, lawyer and signer of the Declaration of Independence
What would have happened if.... In 1777, one year after signing the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Stone had been captured by the British? Students will search for clues to his innocence or guilt and in a mock trial to determine if Thomas Stone was a traitor to Great Britain or an American Patriot for signing the Declaration of Independence. Will your class find him guilty or innocent? The program will address both Maryland Curriculum Standards and Virginia Standards of Learning.
