These activities support the Virginia Standards of Learning.
American revolution crossword puzzle
In this activity, students will use clues and refer to the definitions provided in the beginning of the educational packet to complete the puzzle.
American Revolution Fill-in-the-Blank
In this activity, students will use the context and refer to the definitions provided in the beginning of the educational packet to complete each statement.
AMERICAN REVOLUTION MATCH THE CARDS GAME
In this activity, students will use analytical skills to identify the definition or description that accompanies each person or idea related to the American Revolution. Each description, name, or idea is on a card; students can work individually or in groups to cut the cards apart and match them. The cards can then be pasted onto construction paper and illustrated, or be used to create an interactive class bulletin board about the American Revolution.
AMERICAN REVOLUTION ORDERING ACTIVITY
In this activity, students will number events in Virginia and Revolutionary history in the order in which they occurred. Teachers can make this activity more kinesthetic by listing the different events on individual cards. Students could cut out the events and move them around until they have the correct sequence; they could then glue the cards on a sheet of paper and create a “time line.”
Describing Revolutionary Virginians
In this activity, students will describe four important Virginians from the American Revolution, and use critical thinking to compare and contrast their different roles. Students can divide into small groups, and this activity can be used for a class discussion.
Examining Patrick Henry’s “Give me Liberty or Give me Death!” Speech
In this activity, students will read Patrick Henry’s speech and use analytical skills to determine what he is saying. Teachers can make this more interactive by having each student read part of the speech out loud, and then discuss as a class what Henry is saying in each passage.
