This is a great historical picture book to use while studying the Revolutionary War. It is really an engaging book that allows students to work in cooperative groups to fully understand the Revolutionary War. It helps to motivate students to get through this sometimes difficult and dry material, while reading critically! (I usually teach it during the month of December to keep my students engaged until winter break!!)
Each assignment is based on particular sections of the book. Students can be given these assignments individually, but I feel it works best in cooperative groups with the assigned daily roles. I used this as a Project Based Reading Learning Unit. It was student driven and I facilitated throughout the unit and monitored the groups closely through each project. In my classroom, they completed most of the reading activities on large butcher or poster paper for display throughout the unit. But these assignments can easily be done on a smaller scale!!
*9 Reading Projects for use throughout the historical picture book.
*2 Comprehension Packets with answer guide
*2 student essays- 1 essay included in each comprehension packet (I use the essays as my mid-book and final book assessment)
*Primary Sources study
*Content Vocabulary (blank and pre-defined)
*Extras such as...reading notes page, government comparisons, etc
