  • Product Description
  • StandardsNEW

This resource of 7 bellringers (or short activities) focuses on various portions of the American Revolution. Primary and secondary sources include:

  • Excerpt from Common Sense
  • Chart comparing the Sons of Liberty and Black Panthers
  • Excerpt from the Declaration of Independence
  • Reading on Loyalists
  • Reading on African Americans in the Revolution
  • Reading on the failure of the Articles of Confederation
  • Excerpt from Federalist No. 10

Each bellringer has about two or three questions for students to answer. These activities help students practice analyzing primary sources, summarizing texts, and building their own arguments.

Vocabulary words/concepts covered: Patriots, Loyalists/Tories, Lord Dunmore's Proclamation, natural rights, Common Sense/Thomas Paine, Sons of Liberty, protest groups, Articles of Confederation, strong national government, republican principles, faction

You could use these as bellringers, homework, worksheets, etc. Pick and choose what's best! I used to cut these out and have students glue them in their interactive notebooks. Later, I started posting them on Google Classroom. Do whatever suits you and your students!
