The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

It’s one of my favorite seasons. Of course it’s the holidays, but it’s also time to teach one of my favorite topics in American History-the Road to Revolution. I love this era so much not only for its excitement and concentration of iconic historic figures and events, but also because it offers such a dynamic opportunity to demonstrate cause and effect, and perspectives in history. In this post I will share some activities and resources for teaching about the events leading to the Declaration of Independence. Visit the Social Studies Coach at http://www.historyquesters.com to find the following activities:

Road to Revolution Chain of Events

Boston Massacre and Boston Tea Party Role Play

Patriot vs Loyalists Debate over Independence

 HOTS Bell Ringers on:

               Join or Die

               Letters from a Pennsylvania Farmer on taxes

               Paul Revere’s Boston Massacre Engraving
