Product Description
This activity includes three American Revolution lesson plans.

The first activity is an internet based worksheet on the capture and execution of American spy Nathan Hale. Students read the document and answer the questions. I usually print out the reading for the students, but you can have students answer the questions using the website.

The second activity is a journal activity where students take the role of a British spy at Valley Forge during the winter of 1777/1778. Students will spy on the daily life of Continental soldiers at Valley Forge and George Washington. You can use the following two websites to help students write their journals.

In the third activity students create a simple recruitment poster for either the Continental Army or a Loyalist poster for the British Army. The following image gives students an idea what the poster could look like.
