Product Description
The year is 1775. The Battle of Concord and Lexington are just a week away and already towns across the colonies are wrestling with and important choice; independence or loyalty? This simulation allows students to recreate a town hall meeting from the period right before the War of Independence broke out. By analyzing their character’s biography and drawing on their knowledge of the causes of the American Revolution, students will debate whether their town will fight for the rebels or remain loyal to the crown. This activity also helps develop important history related skills such as;

- citing evidence within a text-based document
- oral presentation skills
- persuasive writing and speaking

This is a great activity that is carefully scaffolded so that students of all skill levels can participate. Included are the directions, examples, worksheets, and 30 role cards for students to act out. This is a fun and engaging way to help students think critically about how events in Boston led to independence.
