A Flip Book About Taxes on the Colonies (don't mind the water mark on the right corner)
Step Book of the Boston Tea Party (Cause, Effect, and Repercussions)
ABC's of the American Revolution
This was a 12x18" (I think) sheet of white paper that was folded five times. Each letter had to hae a vocabulary word and a sentence that used the word correctly so I knew they understood the meaning. Ten of the letters also had to have an illustration. Now this student didn't write sentences but the definitions to each word, but I loved his artwork and creativity and really you could do it either way with your class!
I will try and type up the instructions soon and post them (I just wrote them down on notebook paper and put on the ELMO) but here is the vocabulary list that I gave each table to use. They were allowed to use any of the words I gave them or come up with some on their own. I let them use their Social Studies book, Domino Cause and Effect page, past notes, and picture books to figure out the definitions of words they were unsure of.
These activities are also easy to manipulate and use in another subject or topic! Enjoy!
