This is the morning work I created for my class to complete throughout our American Revolution unit. In the beginning, they will utilize their resources to research the answers. As we progress through the unit, students could complete this on their own as a review. This could be used as a preteaching, homework, morning work, centers...the possibilities are endless!
~Causes of the Revolutionary War (10 of them- French and Indian War, Sugar Act, Stamp Act, Quartering Act, Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party, Intolerable/Coercive Acts, Townshend Acts, First Continental Congress, and Tea Act)
~Battles (Lexington and Concord, Bunker Hill, Saratoga, and Yorktown)
~People (King George, Ben Franklin, Patrick Henry, Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, John Adams, Sons of Liberty, and Daughters of Liberty)
~Events (Shot Heard 'Round the World, Treaty of Paris, etc.)
~Map Skills (Boston, Philadelphia, New York City)
~Declaration of Independence (what, why, how organized, who)
I hope your class enjoys these as much as mine does! Please let me know if I can do anything for you or your students.
