Happy Monday, valued Social Studies Studio teachers!
We are officially nearing the end of the semester! Wow, time is flying! We are thankful for teachers and offer our full 20% off all lesson plans in our Teachers Pay Teachers catalog!
What are you thankful for? November is a good month to reflect and think about all the things you are grateful for. One way to build a classroom community is by creating a writing assignment that challenges your students to write about what they are thankful for. Before you do that, write your list of things you are grateful for and explain why. Read that list to your students to provide an example of what the final product should be and use it as an opportunity to humanize yourself to your students by opening up.

This 45-60 minute lesson plan is appropriate for teachers or to use as emergency sub plans. Brief short readings are included in the packet for students to analyze and complete a final activity about the American Revolutionary War. Everything is included for this lesson.
Students will be required to read and analyze each document. They will show their understanding by answering a series of questions related to the documents that they read.
Historical Context: Was a time in which the British Colonists in America grew tired of the Great Britain rule. As a result of high tensions, the British Colonists rebelled against Great Britain. This resulted in several battles being fought and eventually America gaining its freedom. This war lasted from 1775 until 1783.
In this lesson, the students will read three documents that will help build their background knowledge about the events during the American Revolution war. They will then use their critical thinking skills to answer various open-ended questions that will require them to apply information from these documents to support their answer responses.
