This is a series of short passages with photos of basic events leading to the American Revolution. These are NOT interactive notes, just passages. They include the French and Indian War, Albany Plan of Union and Proclamation of 1763, Sugar/Stamp/Townshend Acts, Boston Massacre, Tea Tax, Boston Tea Party, Battles of Lexington and Concord, Declaration of Independence, Battle of Saratoga and Yorktown Surrender. (5b and 6 are the same page...). I wrote these to condense what was in our textbook so students had something for their personal social studies journals. It does not include activities, just simple passages that are easy for fourth graders to understand.
