In this three-page narrative written specifically for 3rd to 5th graders, the causes of the American Revolution are laid out very clearly. Students will read about all the major events that lead up to the war for independence along with important vocabulary that corresponds. In addition, it supplements the fun song called "Powder Your Wig" found on my CD called Powder Your Wig: Songs Inspired by the American Revolution. You can stream the song for free at https://rockinthruhistory.bandcamp.com/track/powder-your-wig. This article is the perfect companion to the song and a fantastic way to teach elementary students about the causes of the American Revolution!
