Photo #334/365: The American Revolution, A New Approach
We are working on our American Revolution unit for Core Knowledge. This year I'm using a new approach. I moved my webquest onto our Explore Earth Wiki, and I am using a book that Mr. Pugh gave me. It is called Hands On History: The American Revolution, and it is chock full of hands on activities that hopefully will keep the kids more engaged. We created a Domino Time Line that we add events to each day. So far we started a vocabulary display with a battlefield scene, and we made a French and Indian War lockbook. It was an adventure getting the pages together. I'll let you know how this works.
