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.
