In this Women and African-Americans in the Revolutionary War lesson, students learn about the experiences of both women and African Americans in the American Revolution.
Often forgotten about, these two groups played essential roles in helping our country gain independence. Students will read about the variety of roles that women played in gaining independence - then will assume the role of George Washington writing home to recount how women have assisted in the war effort! Then, students will read a variety of details about the war experience of African Americans - then will summarize the variety of ways that blacks could fight in the war!
Time-on-task is very high in this lesson, so please check out the preview for more information (the quality is perfect in the real version, but is lessened in the preview just to give you an idea of what to expect). These two groups are mentioned in virtually all state standards in regard to American Revolution! This product is 1:1 Google compatible -- just share through Google or assign via Google Classroom!
Included in this lesson is: Women in the American Revolution Article, African Americans in the American Revolution Article, Combined Women and African American Student Handout, Full-Page Women Handout, Full-Page African American Handout
