Product Description

Students love being active and thinking critically. This inquiry quest allows them to do both! The inquiry model allows students to show mastery and interact with information in a new way.

The inquiry quest includes 14 unique scenarios with a question that the student must answer. These scenarios put the students in the shoes of a British Officer tasked with keeping order in the colonies. To correctly answer the question that accompanies each scenario, students must apply their knowledge of the content and suggest specific taxes, correctly implement the Proclamation of 1763, identify ring-leaders of the Sons of Liberty, and much more!

This low-prep activity includes three different answer sheets. One sheet comes with hints for students who need more guidance. As the teacher, all you have to do is post the 14 scenarios around the classroom or hallway, give each student an answer sheet, and send them on their quest! My students love it!

This activity includes identifying and understanding:

  • The Proclamation of 1763
  • Benjamin Franklin and Poor Richard's Almanac
  • Mercantilism
  • Pontiac's Rebellion
  • The Sugar Act
  • The Quartering Act
  • The Stamp Act
  • The Declaratory Act
  • The Townshend Acts
  • The Boston Massacre
  • The Boston Tea Party
  • The Intolerable Acts
  • Sons of Liberty
  • John Adam's Defense of British soldiers
  • Samuel Adams and John Hancock as Sons of Liberty leaders
  • Samuel Adams' Creation of Committee's of Correspondence

An answer key is included.
