American Revolution: This pack includes 24 "Pattern Portraits" featuring influential men and women from the Revolution time period. Some of the people are more famous than others or they played a more prominent role in the American Revolution, but you can review the list below to see if the people fit into your studies.

:::::::::::Although I marked these for grades 4-6, these would add pizzazz to any US History classroom. The pennant could be hung all year. If your students do a great job, laminate them and use them year after year as a classroom decoration. ::::::::::

Ways to Use: When doing a formal writing assignment by having students share what they have learned about each individual and their role in the American Revolution, research project in media center or using websites, Coloring Activity during recess or with a substitute when studying the Revolution, morning work coloring to introduce the figure you are studying later in the day, list facts learned about the people in history, project their portraits when introducing or talking about the individuals, use to decorate your classroom or hallway display on this topic, so much more.

Once completed, the banner will look great hanging up all year long.

What are pattern portraits? They are portraits of famous people with patterns behind the image. When students color the patterns in a variety of different colors, the finished product is whimsical and fun. They can then color the realistic image of the famous person that is in front of the patterns. These are sure to add colorful pizzazz to your classroom. For the most pep from your portraits, tell your students to use lots of different colors and try not to have two of the same colors touching.

For each of the 24 people, there is a choice of a pattern portrait coloring sheet, writing paper to glue to each one, and a pennant to make a class banner. Writing paper is formatted to glue to the coloring sheet or the pennant. The extra-long pennants are really neat! You can choose what you would like to use.
