UKS2 History - The Boston Tea Party Informational Text Writing Unit

This is an informational text writing unit about the American Revolutionary War or the American War of Independence. The unit focuses on key facts about the Boston Tea Party. The unit has been split into three separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each.

The first lesson is interactive and involves them cutting out facts, and then sorting these facts into paragraphs. In the second lesson the children need to use these facts to write four paragraphs. Then, in the final lesson your class will need to check their draft paragraphs for mistakes before writing up their work into a neat copy on the template provided.

NO PREP is needed!

Good luck, I hope you get some great results!
