The Boston Tea Party Webquest with Key- This is a 4 page document that contains a webquest and a completed teachers key for easy marking. It contains 10 questions from the history.com website.
Students will be asked to watch a video which will provide a detailed accounting of the Sons of Liberty and the Boston Tea Party. An article with a historical accounting of the Boston Tea Party is also required reading before beginning the webquest. The lead up to the Boston Tea Party (the passing of the Tea Act), the Sons of Liberty and the role of Samuel Adams, the destruction of the British Tea, and the British reaction to the Boston Tea Party, are all covered by this webquest.
This webquest can be easily used as an introduction to the topic, a study guide, or a quick and easy sub plan.
