Two great activities that would span four lessons on the end of the American Revolutionary War (or the American War of Independence) and the Treaty of Paris.
NO PREP is needed!
Firstly, there is a close reading activity - children need to read through an informational text, and then answer comprehension and grammar questions, before completing an extension activity.
Secondly, there is an informational text writing unit. The unit has been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each. Ideal for students learning about World War I or the interwar years.
Good luck, I hope you get some great results!
