This PowerPoint prepares students for Lucy Calkins Bringing History to Life Informational Writing Unit. This unit requires that students have background knowledge before teaching. It covers the events leading up to the American Revolution and includes a summary page of the events covered in building background PPTs 1-3 (Coming to America, French and Indian War, taxes, Navigation Act, Quartering Act, Sugar Act, Stamp Act, Townshend Acts, life of a British soldier, and the Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party, Intolerable Acts, British vs. American soldiers, and The First Continental Congress) for student binders. It includes a short-response answer with sentence frames as a guide to prepare students for state testing.
*This links two optional Liberty Kids videos which will lengthen the lesson if you opt to use them.
The notes pages are an additional word document which is 4.5 pages. A preview of what this looks like is shown with my BB1 and BB2 PowerPoints.
