Description

Our The Revolutionary War Lesson Plan enables students to explain the causes of the Revolutionary War, identify some of the major events, battles, and people, and define some of the terms related to the war.  Reinforce research and teamwork skills as students work in pairs to gather details and facts to compose a presentation on their assigned Revolutionary War topic.

Classroom Procedure Sample Snippet:

  1. Ask: How many of you sometimes find the rules you follow, whether at home, school, or in your community, hard sometimes difficult to obey? Why? What would you do if you absolutely needed to get them changed?
  2. Allow for responses and discussion leading to the rules and tactics the British used against the colonists before the Revolutionary War.
  3. Distribute the Revolutionary War content pages. Read and review with the students, checking their understanding of the words in bold print, as well as the meaning of the images.
  4. Discuss any questions the students may have and allow the students to give their opinions throughout the reading.
  5. Once the reading has been completed, saving the final question for the closing of the lesson, distribute the Activity pages.
  6. Pair students and review the instructions. Assign each pair of students one of the events, battles, or person.
  7. Remind students to use the Internet or other resources to gather details and facts, besides just using the content pages.
  8. The length of the presentation is not as important as the quality of the facts and details related to the research topic.
  9. Once all students have completed, allow each pair of students to present their findings to the class. This may take two days.

Excellent plans

This lesson was a good framework for me to work into the material aI had previously collected on the war. I love all the lesson plans. They give me so many great ideas of ways to teach different lessons that the kids will enjoy.
