Here is a 6 page History and Reading minilesson explaining how troubling events grew into the American Revolution. It describes Taxation Without Representation, The Stamp Act, The Tea Tax, The Intolerable Acts, and The Boston Tea Party. It shows how the Patriots and The Sons of Liberty came to decide to fight England in order to become a free country. This would probably provide a nice supplement or review for your Social Studies classes. A little over 2 pages provides interesting informational text. That is followed by 14 multiple choice questions that assess vocabulary and reading comprehension. Reading skills tapped are Determining Main Ideas, Locating Details, Drawing Conclusions, Identifying Causes and Effects, Making Inferences, and as mentioned Vocabulary. It comes with 4 different pictures depicting the Stamp Act and the Boston Tea Party. (They are in color, which does not always show up on my tiffs. One of them I did not put on a thumbnail.) The 7th page has the answer key. This product is a word document that you can easily edit if necessary.
