These are task cards I created to use to check for mastery with our American Revolution unit. These are designed with 4th grade in mind, but they could be used in other grades are remediation, pre-teaching, or extension. Each is open ended to ensure they are not just guessing the answer and not really taking the time to think about and apply what they know.
~Major causes of the American Revolution (Stamp Act, Sugar Act, Townshend Act, Intolerable Acts, Quartering Act, Tea Act, Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party, French and Indian War)
~Why the taxes started
~No taxation without representation
~Compare/Contrast British Army to Continental Army
~Major battles (Lexington/Concord, Saratoga, Yorktown) and what happened at each
~Patriot vs. Loyalist
~Sons/Daughters of Liberty
These could be used as individual practice, an assessment, a group activity, homework, or for an early finisher.
I hope your class gets great use out of these task cards!
