In this Revolutionary War Activity pack there are five main activities:

1. Introduce the Revolutionary War Unit with Anticipatory Set of T/F questions to pique and build background knowledge. Read about the causes of the revolution and complete the organizers.

2. Next, create a learning station for each of the 8 character studies. In a folder at each station include the Meet Me passages and mini-booklets for students to complete. Students complete the Character Mini-Booklets by writing 3 facts about that person, sorting the timeline dates into the correct order, coloring, cutting, and assembling them into their notebooks. There are two articles on each person: one in black and white and one in color to laminate and post on a bulletin board if desired.

3. Then, read about the main battles highlighted and complete the custom-created graphic organizers. These work well as partner work or as independent work.

4. Introduce the vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too. Shine a spotlight on vocabulary with related activities included in this pack.

5. Lastly, read about the outcomes or results of the Revolutionary War. Bring the students together for class discussions to check for understanding and further their critical thinking skills after each lesson. At the end of the unit come back to the Anticipatory Questions and K-W-L to check and correct their answers.
