Our Revolutionary War lesson plan introduces students to the Revolutionary War, including some causes and effects and related vocabulary. During this lesson, students are asked to work in pairs to gather details and facts to compose a presentation on their assigned Revolutionary War topic, reinforcing their research and teamwork skills. Students are also asked to complete a crossword puzzle using terms from the lesson, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to explain the causes of the Revolutionary War, identify some of the major events, battles, and people, and define some of the terms related to the war.
