This activity provides students with a timeline visual of the events leading up to the American Revolution as well as the major battles of the American Revolution. Students can use their notes or textbook to independently research and cut and paste the correct event or battle under the date. Students can use online resources. Another way this can be used is as notes with a teacher to teach the order of events, or it can be used as a quiz to assess student’s knowledge of the order of events. Answer key is included for teachers.
