Students review the Revolutionary War by organizing 29 events on and answering 4 questions. The events span the French and Indian War to the US Constitution. Students classify each item according to a system detailed in the instructions, they complete one task for 6 items of their choice, and another task for 4 other items. There are arrows in the first two lines of the timeline showing students the direction to fill out the pieces in. This could work for a sub and the answers are included where appropriate.
