This activity would be great for a U.S. history class or a world history class that is touching on the American Revolution. It lets the students take control of the involved governments and decide the outcome. It also could help students learn cooperative and team-building skills.
"This activity has students take on historical roles and make decisions about outcomes. They should already have knowledge of the American Revolution. The activity is designed for four groups of students: each group gets a half slip (two slips to a page). Each slip will tell the group who they are and what they have to do. This is meant for students to debate with one another and determine what their group will do, without necessarily following the constructs of history. Ideally, each group should have to present and explain to the class their decision." Taken from the description in the product.
