About This Lesson

This multifaceted lesson is a great way to introduce and review different revolutions from 1450 to present. This lesson provides students with a foundation for understanding the general chronology and locations of revolutions covered in ost modern world history classes. Students will analyze the various causes of revolutions, draw connections between revolutions, and work collaboratively to make inferences in order to create a visual timeline of these revolutions throughout world history.

It would make a great addition to any world revolutions unit and  would pair nicely with the Revolutions Research Extension Activity. It would also make a great companion to learning about the American Revolution, as there’s plenty of fodder for comparison between various revolutions and the Revolutionary War. 

Happy Learning,

Sarah
