Causes of the American Revolution Flip Book!
Fold your piece of paper four times, unravel it, fold it in half long ways (hot dog style), and cut eight flaps for the eight causes. Your only requirements are to label each cause in chronological order, and include a written description and visual for all eight causes. I'd like you to use my descriptions, but you can definitely add to them if you'd like. How you design your flip book is totally up to you! Challenge yourself and include the year to transform it into time line! The eight causes and descriptions are listed below in chronological order for you. Your visuals can be really simple, but obvious thought and effort are required. I suggest browsing through pages 268-280 of your red book, chapter ten of your History Alive book (or my PowerPoint if a CPU is available) as you go along to get some ideas. Enjoy!
