The American Revolution

Task One:  Review Vocabulary and Concepts

Within your assigned groups, you must learn the 56 vocabulary words and concepts associated with this unit.  You will be using these words through out the unit.  You can use a variety of means to complete this task, including the online games and activities (listed below), the print material (including flip chutes), or other means.  You want to make sure that everyone in your group learns the vocabulary and concepts because - even though you will all take an individual quiz - your group can receive extra points (improvement points) based on everyone's scores.

Task Two:  Revolutions Around The World

Your group will explore four revolutions:  Chinese, Russian, French, and South American.  The focus here will be to answer five general questions that will assist in understanding the American Revolution. Each group member will be responsible for researching one revolution and then sharing the information with the group.

Your group will participate in this online activity in which you will travel to great cities during the American Revolution and learn about people, events, battles, that were significant to the American Revolution.

Task Four:  Decisions, Decisions: Revolutionary Wars

Task Five:  Final Project

Good Luck.
