A sort of events leading up to the American Revolution and the perspectives of both sides. Cut apart descriptions and have students match the event with both the colonist and British perspective. Students will gain a deeper understanding of history by examining the events from both the colonists’ point-of-view as well as the British perspective. This can be used as a station activity, partner activity, notes or individual assignment Sheets can be left as is or folded to fit in an interactive notebook. Differentiate by offering differing levels of support and choices. For students who need a challenge, give them all 36 pieces and the blank sheets and have them match them together in the order that they occurred. For students that need more support give them only one of the printed sheets at a time with 18 pieces. This is one of my low-prep “Print, Cut, Learn” activities. Print out the task cards, cut them apart and let the learning begin!
36 Sort Cards
