This lesson provides a fun authentic way for students to experience the evening of the Boston Massacre. They will critically analyze 5 sources that discuss the same event, and then determine whether the British soldiers or the colonists were at fault for the event's events. The primary sources have been edited a bit for clarity and comprehension.

This document includes a 2 page detailed lesson plan, two pages of primary sources, a graphic organizer (blank and filled in), a simple powerpoint with the questions from the historical background for discussion and a 3 page historical background. The historical background includes details about the Townshend Acts and the Boston Massacre.
