This PowerPoint: Some Rebellions of History introduces students the concept of rebellions with its main focus being Shays' and the Whiskey Rebellion. This PowerPoint starts by showing a couple of examples of rebellion that students may be familiar with such as Nat Turner Rebellion or even MLK's March on Washington.
At the end of the PowerPoint is a couple of reflection questions and discussion questions about what Shays' and Whiskey rebellion reveals.
It is a great way for students to understand that "rebellions" happen constantly and they reveal a lot about the government and the people fighting for and against them. Rebellions can even be peaceful too.
