The causes and events Leading to the American Revolution can be challenging for students. Support your students throughout the unit with this resource. Your students will begin the lesson with vocabulary development on the key terms for the unit. I have included extra information on the use of word walls to support you. An anticipation guide will introduce your students to the American Revolution. Your students will learn about each event through an image analysis, informational text, and QR Codes to video clips. They will write summaries in their Interactive Notebook with a graphic organizer. Multiple opportunities to discuss and write are included with Bounce Cards, Quick Checks, Decision Tree and a diary entry.
