Students get a more in depth look at battles from the Revolutionary War using this graphic organizer. They pick 10 of 16 battles to research and in the chart they fill in the battle name, when and where it happened, which side won, and the general historical significance to the battle. They also answer 10 questions of varying levels of difficulty about specific battles, turning points during the Revolutionary War, and fighting strategies such as guerrilla warfare. This is appropriate for both World and US History. I typically have students do this in pairs. Depending on what you cover in class, the students might need access to reference books or the internet to do additional research. The answers are included and this would be great for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--At which battle did the British realize the Americans were not going to be easily defeated?
--How was Saratoga a turning point in the war?
--Explain some differences in fighting a defensive and offensive battle/war.
--Name and describe the new style of fighting that the patriots engaged in which the British were not prepared for.
--Which battle do you think is most remembered today and why?
