To review major battles and other significant events of the Revolutionary War.
2 class periods
Students join pages 36E and 36F together to form a map that they will use to label major battles and other significant events of the Revolutionary War.
Class members then begin the mapping activity by reading a section entitled Battles of Lexington and Concord, which is followed by these directions:
On the map:
(1) Trace Arrow 1 (British) from Boston to Lexington and Concord.
(2) Print April 1775 next to Lexington and Concord.
(3) Color the battle symbol to represent an American victory.
The lesson continues in the same way with students reading several more sections about major battles and events of the Revolutionary War followed by directions for map work.
My students really enjoy this map exercise! I provide them with colored pencils that they can use to represent American vs. British victories, as well as troop movements.
Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to assess student progress.
The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
