In the year 1215, the way governments and citizens interact was forever changed by the signing of a document known as the Magna Carta. While students are often familiar with the importance of this charter, this title explores the text itself by narrating the history of the charter's development and pairing excerpts of text with straightforward explanations at a lower elementary reading level. Vocabulary boxes highlight advanced terms and provide simple definitions, while "Think About It" and "Compare and Contrast" sidebars encourage readers to make connections within the text and beyond.
