Are you looking for a fun game to review the Events Leading to the American Revolution ? Try this lesson! It is perfect for a formative assessment or a review activity prior to a state test. Your students will benefit from activities such as this from the visuals and discussion opportunities created.

In this activity, students will review summaries of the different events leading to the American Revolution. Once their summaries are reviewed, they will create a Human Timeline by posting their placard (slide from the PowerPoint) and sharing their summary with the class. All of the images from the placards help serve as a visual cue for your students. Once you have reviewed the events in chronological order, you can lead a class discussion by creating a Human Spectrum. – Which of these events was the most important leading to the American Revolution? The least? This allows your student to discuss and review the topics in a meaningful way.

This activity includes:

placards with the events leading to the American Revolution – 13 different beautiful images to sort and discuss (see the preview for all of the placards)

summaries of the key events in leading to the American Revolution

Human Spectrum signs – Most to Least Important, and

teacher directions – for your pleasure!
