    American Revolution

    Some ideas- two good books are George Washington's Socks & Winter of the Red Snow. There are some great Jean Fritz books & videos that accompany them. I'm going to do my biography box again this year (As soon as the Science Fair is over!) The students use a new pizza box (I purchase these from Domino's for 25 cents each.) They fill it with research of the life of a Rev. War figure. To get started we make a round circle of white art paper, divide it into fourths or sixths, your choice. They use this as the "fact wheel" and add other items. Some examples- they write a poem, do a fact sheet, create a 3-D art project, draw a map, write a pretend interview with their person, write a diary entry, etc. You can really get some good projects, I require that everything has to fit inside the box. When it is opened the entire box & contents can be displayed on a shelf & easily stored in your room. If you have any questions, just email.
