This activity allows students to demonstrate their comprehension of how the Enlightenment inspired the American Revolution in a creative and independent way. Students will create revolutionary banners based on the ideals found in the Enlightenment that were behind the push for American independence. The activity includes a series of Debriefing questions that allow students to explain the symbolism behind their banner and how it connects to the Enlightenment ideal that they chose. It also includes a basic scoring guide. My students LOVE this activity and have created some GREAT work year after year that remains on my walls all year long!
