PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

American Revolution STEM and More!

Are you looking to integrate STEM, Writing, and Art into your teaching of the American Revolution? This project is perfect for you! I created this project because I wanted my students to participate in a hands-on experience while studying spying in the American Revolution. During the Revolution, spies sometimes used the clothing they hung on their clotheslines to pass secret messages. This was a way to pass secret messages out in the open, under the watchful eye of the British. In cooperative groups, students will build a sturdy clothesline using only the materials provided to them. Then, they will create a clothesline code that may have been used to pass secret messages between spies and spy networks.

Materials Needed for the STEM portion of this project (per group):
2 foam cups (8.5 oz)
36 inches of fishing Wire
2 wooden popsicle sticks (jumbo size)
36 inches of masking tape
6 standard paperclips
6 pieces of paper clothing (included in this packet)

Optional: Read "The Scarlet Stockings Spy" by Trinka Hakes Noble
