This book is designed to help students develop their knowledge of key areas of the American Revolutionary War, whilst working on their comprehension skills independently, and adding to their grammar knowledge and creative writing.
Each activity requires NO PREP and has a body of text that students need to read through thoroughly; then they can use the text to find the comprehension and grammar answers. All texts then have an extension activity for those fast finishers.
This book contains the following close reading activities:
1 – An Overview of the Revolutinary War
2 – The Boston Tea Party
3 – The Siege of Boston
4 – The Battle of Trenton and Princeton
5 – The End of the War & The Treaty of Paris
6 – George Washington
If you would like to take a look at the design of the products, The Outbreak of World War II in Europe comes free in my store.
Answers, for teacher use, are on the final pages of the document.
Time allowance ( one hour) for each activity:
5 minutes - read through the text individually.
