Product Description
What caused the American Revolution? In this activity students examine several key events that led to the Revolution. Events in this activity include: the Sugar Act, the Stamp Act, the Townshend Acts, the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, and the Intolerable Acts (Coercive Acts).

This activity allows students to think about the events and to demonstrate their understanding through summarizing, sketching, and creative thinking. To complete thie activity students may use a variety of resources, such as a Social Studies textbook or the internet.

My students enjoy sharing their work from this activity. In my U.S. History class, I use this activity as an introduction to some of the main causes of the American Revolution.

Extension ideas: This activity can be easily extended into a timeline activity. It can also be extended into a more detailed examination of one event in a groupwork setting. For example, one group examines the Stamp Act and creates a poster or PowerPoint of the event.

This Event Sheet activity is in Microsoft Word 97-2003 format, so it is editable in order to suit your individual teaching needs. Enjoy!
