Road to Revolution Timeline Project

·       7th & 8th graders have been given a timeline assignment that will be used to teach our 6th graders about the history that led up to the American Revolution.

·       Each student was assigned a particular event that caused tension between the colonists and the British Empire.

·       They need to research their event and create a panel to fit on a timeline in our classroom.

·       Each student received their panel and an instruction sheet today.

·       They need to answer:

o   The year their event occurred.

o   What about the event caused tension to rise between the British and the colonists?

o   How did the colonists react to the event?

o   Why should we care about this event today?

o   They need to have ONE dominant image of the event and a caption describing the image on their timeline panel.

·       TIMELINE DUE MONDAY, NOVEMBER 8

 

NEXT UP:

·       Declaration of Independence & The American Revolution – week of Nov. 8

·       The Constitution – Willie’s first teaching unit – all of December
