This product is designed to use visual literacy as a way to learn about American History, in this case the Boston Tea Party. There are two activities for students to demonstrate their knowledge using the same image from the Boston Tea Party.
The first activity is called Visual Literacy. A simple graphic organizer is provided for students to record what they see and what the image means. This activity is simple enough for students of all levels and abilities, but very engaging for the whole class to participate. It works well as a bell ringer activity or as a discussion springboard.
The second activity is called Annotate the Drawing. This activity requires students to choose some of the characters in the drawing and create speech/thought bubbles for them. They then write 1-2 sentences to demonstrate their understanding of the Boston Tea Party. This activity is a good way to conclude a unit or lesson. It works well as a formative assessment, homework assignment or even something for the students who finish their work early.
