Product Description
In this activity, students are to pretend that texting existed during the time of the American Revolution.

They are to simulate the text exchange that may have occurred between King George III and Thomas Jefferson after the Declaration of Independence was signed.

The text exchange uses a fake text online simulator and is to include reference to 10 specific events that students identify as the cause of the Revolution. The exchange must identify the event and provide the reaction to that event from the perspective of either Jefferson or King George.

It is a nice activity to do after teaching the Declaration of Independence and allows students to re-interpret the Road to Revolution prior to actually covering specific battles.

For the fake text website, be sure to remind students that the website only allows you to export certain amount of text so they need to periodically export their text script.
