I like the unit by The Sweetest Thing...it's long, but really detailed...but it's really reading heavy. I like to break up all the reading by using the Liberty Kids videos on Youtube and various activities that I find on Pinterest

help! i'm in 5th grade for the first time in decades...i am learning SOOO much american history!!!!!

before break we read some generic blurbs about the causes leading up to the Revolutionary War (taken from a workbook i'd purchased--text=way too long for me to read through to glean ideas!). the next day (and our first day back we'll finish) i gave them a couple websites to find additional information on those topics not covered well (Sons of Liberty, Committees of Correspondence...) for them to summarize the main idea.

i just pulled up "Revolutionary War" on TPT and was overwhelmed. Is there a great product any of you just love?

also, are there any activities (i desperately need to get them up and moving and doing less reading and question-answering) that you swear by? i do plan to do the taxing with candy activity.

thanks for your help!

Teaching about the Revolution is my absolute favorite thing to teach all year! I have written several blog posts about it (though I have nothing on TpT...just all ideas and resources on my blog)

Here is one where I list a great deal of things I do throughout the unit.
http://www.teachinginroom6.com/2012/...ideas-and.html

Looking at the truths and bias of the Boston Massacre. This is a GREAT lesson to get the kids really thinking about *who* is telling the history and thinking about propaganda on both sides.
http://www.teachinginroom6.com/2017/...-massacre.html

Seeing the Boston Tea Party through the eyes of the British.
http://www.teachinginroom6.com/2017/...t-of-view.html

This is my FAVORITE one. Tracking the real path of Paul Revere and wading through the truths and myths of what we know about him.
http://www.teachinginroom6.com/2015/...t-or-myth.html

A math tie-in. Creating spy messages using ciphers and expressions.
http://www.teachinginroom6.com/2016/...onary-war.html

An art lesson with some history thrown in. Recreating famous paintings that depict this time period by inserting the kids into it.
http://www.teachinginroom6.com/2015/...f-masters.html

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this unit. I have so many more ideas that I have done over the years, but these should keep you busy for a while

Evan Moore's History Pockets have great activities for the Revolutionary War, Civil War, Colonial Times and more. Our 5th graders enjoyed the activities.

We used to show the Disney movie titled Johnny Tremain to wrap the lessons.
