One year I used this as a WebQuest activity and the next I used it as an ongoing activity.
WebQuest: I only allow students to use particular websites. Usually I allow them to use www.history.com, www.USHistory.org, www.kidport.com, etc. If there are particular websites that you like/dislike you can add them or take them away if you want, of course.
On-Going: For whatever reason, my kids like taking notes because they get to talk and discuss. This was a way for them to organize their timeline instead of getting lost in the notes.
You could also use this as a re-teaching activity after you've talked about the events leading to American independence.
Answers: Proclamation of 1763, Stamp Act 1765, Declaratory Act 1766, Townshend Acts 1767, Boston Massacre 1770, Tea Act 1773, Boston Tea Party 1773, Intolerable Acts 1774, First Continental Congress 1774, Battles of Lexington and Concord 1775, Second Continental Congress 1775, Declaration of Independence 1776
^^Those are the standard events in chronological order. Of course, you can change these if you would like. Happy Revolution!
