Mapping the American Revolution
8th grade American History students have been discussing the American Revolution. This week, they participated in a “gallery walk” in which they traveled around the classroom, read information and noted key facts posted about the different battles that took place. The students are using their notes and knowledge to create their own google map of the battles they are exploring. Each battle location on their map will include graphics and a detailed paragraph that describes not only the events that took place, but an explanation of the importance of each of these battles.
