Have you ever wondered what our founding fathers would say if they had a Facebook page. Now you students can have that chance. This purchase contains "Historybook" pages for many of the American Revolution's famous people. Most of the figures included in this file are patriots but two are loyalists.
Activity Description: Students can be given a "Historybook" page to complete for a Revolutionary figure. Students will need to conduct some research to learn about each person's jobs, accomplishments and interesting facts. Then students will focus on their figures contributions to the American Revolution and create status updates that their assigned figure might have posted. Pages very in difficulty. Some students will have more work/research to complete while others will have less. This will give you an opportunity to challenge or support various learners. Each page has at least one status update already created to provide students with an example.
Revolutionary Figures: George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Benedict Arnold, John Adams, King George III, Patrick Henry, Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine.
I would appreciate any feedback!
