What educators are saying

This was a great starter for my artistic students who used it as a springboard and expanded it to include details of all of the "characters" we had studied.
This project was a hit with my 5th graders! It looks amazing on our wall and my students absolutely loved doing it!

Revolutionary War. Looking for a fun addition to your American Revolution or Revolutionary War unit? How about having your students create a Revolutionary War caricature by tracing over different features already created in this packet so they can have fun, share some laughs, and stay engaged as your Revolutionary War unit, or your school year, comes to a close. Each one of these original features can be combined to make a variety of characters! The sillier the better!

Included in this product are 4 different bodies - a patriot, a minuteman, a cannoneer holding a swab, and a British soldier holding a musket. There are also 4 face shapes, 12 eyebrows, 12 eyes, 12 noses, 12 mouths, 7 mouths, and 4 hats with hair.

Using tracing paper works best, but you can still see the shapes under regular printer paper and trace over them. Students simply put their paper over the body they chose and trace the features, same for the face, eyes, ears, noses, mouths, etc.
