More than rote memorization of facts about the battles of the American Revolution...This worksheet accomplishes several goals: it lists the major battles of the war, asks students to determine the significance of the battles, engages students with the use of Twitter hashtags, and develops geography skills. The document is available in Microsoft Word to allow you to edit it for your classes. A list of suggested websites is included for your use. Allow students to work in group and jigsaw if you are pressed for time in the classroom.
Instructions for students as printed on the document: The chart below is a guide to the significant battles and events of the Revolutionary War. Fill in the missing boxes with accurate historical information using the websites provided by your teacher. The first row has been completed for you as an example. Once the chart is complete, plot the locations of the major battles on the attached map.
