The "Famous People from the Revolution" poster activity has plenty of places for students to add their own creative touches with color when they color in the images of the famous people.

On this poster, there are 6 famous people. There is then a sentence that goes with the person. It is written as if the person is speaking. The sentence is tied to an event in history associated with the person, but the students must elaborate on it to finish the statement. The answers are open ended, but they should include factual information.
