This is a fun lesson about the Sons of Liberty, and the Liberty Pole. Like the liberty tree the colonists would make liberty poles with flags showing their unity against the British and make speeches under them. In this lesson students would make a liberty pole and then write a speech about the grievances they had against the British. Have your students give a speech under the liberty pole!
This lesson comes with a lesson plan, a rubric for how to make a flag for the liberty pole and a rubric for the protest speech. It also comes with four different flag templates.
