Students will love creating a timeline of causes of the American Revolution. Allow your students to discover the major causes of the Revolutionary War along with a brief description of each event.
This student-created timeline is perfect for use in interactive notebooks to serve as a visual reference during your revolutionary war unit! Students will take notes on each of the causes of the Revolution on the included note cards. Then they will put the events in order to create a Revolutionary War timeline.
Causes of the Revolutionary War include:
- Sugar Act
- Stamp Act
- Quartering Act
- Townshend Act
- British troops arrive in Boston
- Boston Massacre
- Tea Acts
- Boston Tea Party
- Intolerable Acts
- First Continental Congress
- Battles of Lexington and Concord
The differentiated options provide 4 levels of scaffolding to make this accessible for all of your students. You can choose between a cut & glue timeline, scaffolded notes, dated timeline for students to write in the events, and a blank timeline. Full and half page sizes are included for each version.
Use this timeline as a review after teaching the Causes of the American Revolution or before standardized testing! For a fun activity to incorporate some movement into your day, have students line themselves up in order of the Revolutionary War causes without talking to one another. This will be a challenge for your students as well as give them an opportunity to work on teamwork skills.
