I created this project to reinforce the concept of taxation without representation. I wanted students to express their understanding of the frustration colonists felt with the unfair taxation imposed by Parliament.
This simple freebie contains a teacher notes page, project information page, grading sheet, and picture examples of posters.
This project was so much fun! When I created this assignment for my students, I expected nice, ordinary posters. That’s not what they turned in, however! I was beyond impressed with the quality of the posters my students created.
I work in a very high-poverty school, so I provided construction paper and asked students to create their posters using materials at school. However, many students truly went above and beyond to create their posters, as you will see on the example page.
