Product Description
American Revolution simulation activity

History can be difficult for students to understand and experience. Simulations help students put themselves in the past, learning about history in an authentically engaging way. Students love simulations because they don't know what the final outcome will be. It's an exciting learning experience!

Want to try a FREE simulation? You can download my free World War 2 Battle of Iwo Jima simulation to get a closer look!

This minimal prep simulation puts students in the role of a colonist or tax collector during the time period leading up to the US Revolutionary War. Students will learn about the frustrations and hardships colonists endured. This resource is aligned to my American Revolution Unit Bundle.

This simulation includes:
★ 34 colonist ID cards (17 men & 17 women)
★ 6 tax collector ID cards
★ 18 job cards (8 men & 8 women)
★ 8 Sugar Act cards
★ 8 Stamp Act cards
★ 8 Townshend Act cards
★ 8 Tea Act cards
★ 8 Intolerable Acts cards
★ 8 choice cards
★ student instructions page
★ 2 student simulation recording pages (1 for colonist role & 1 for tax collector role)
★ teacher instructions page
★ 2 RAFT tasks (1 for colonist role & 1 for tax collector role)

The cards have a colored background to differentiate between the different types. However, if you prefer to save color ink, I have included black line versions, and you can print onto colored paper. The only item you need besides what is included in this resource is one die. That's it! Everything else you need is right here!

If a student draws a colonist ID card, he/she begins the simulation with the pay from his/her chosen job. Students want to end the simulation with as much money as possible. As students progress through this simulation, there are different ways in which their fates are determined. Sometimes students simply draw a card and their fate is shown, sometimes students have to roll a die, and sometimes students can make a free choice. Each decision affects their fate. There are multiple outcomes based on the cards drawn, the choices students make, and what the student rolls. Students can go through this simulation multiple times and have a different outcome each time!

If a student draws a tax collector ID card, he/she will collect the taxes the colonists must pay. Students will also take a percentage of the collected taxes and redistribute the money to the monarch of Great Britain, the British Parliament, and him/herself. Students will also be working on math skills during this simulation!

My students LOVE simulations! Not only are they engaging and fun, but students are also LEARNING more about the topic.

This simulation is included in my American Revolution Curriculum. If you are looking for a comprehensive curriculum, be sure to check out my Yearlong US History Curriculum.
