American Revolution Webquest

Students will gain basic knowledge about the American Revolution by completing an internet-based worksheet. The American Revolution Webquest uses a great website that allows students to look at artifacts from the American Revolution.

The webquest contains 50 questions and is a great way to introduce or review the key facts and events of the American Revolution. An answer sheet is included for the teacher.

Word and PDF versions are included.

I usually use this activity as a review or introduction activity for my students. It takes most students 30 to 50 minutes to complete the webquest depending on age. Word and PDF versions are included for the teacher. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students.

I would like to thank Illumismart for the wonderful clip art!
