American Revolution Unit PBL

This is a whole unit that takes about 28 days to complete. Everything you need from the Causes of the American Revolution, Important People, Declaration of Independence, and American Revolution Battles. The unit focuses around project based learning. The students create a storybook for younger children to understand the American Revolution. My students either work independently or with a co-author and then at the end we get a review panel together and they select 6-10 stories to be read at the elementary school that feeds into our middle school. Students love it and love the idea to being able to go to the elementary school and show off their work.

Other things that are included in the unit is vocabulary, video questions with notes (you will either need to purchase America The Story of US or look for the videos on YouTube. They were not added for copyright purposes), reading with notes (audio included), taxation without representation activity, document analysis, gallery walk, and checkpoint evaluations. All you need to do is download and you are ready to go with the whole unit on American Revolution.
