Today we focused on just a few lesser-known people of the American Revolution and a couple of well-known, but foreign people.
- Abigail Adams
- Mercy Otis Warren
- Wentworth Cheswell
- James Armistead
- Marquis de Lafayette
- Bernardo de Galvez
- Haym Solomon
In groups of up to 4 students you received a file that contained 4 pieces of paper about one of the above people.
The titles of each are as follows:
- Who am I?
- What am I known for?
- When did I make my name?
- Where did I get my fame?
Each person at the group had to read a piece of paper to the group as if they were that person.
After each of the pages were read, the group had to work together to write a sentence in each of their journals:
I am ______________________ and you should remember because…
You also wrote 1 unique thing about that person on a strip of paper and placed it on the white board with a magnet near the name of that person.
Activity Party II:
After the sentence was completed one person of the group had to read their new sentence to the class as if they were that person.
We passed the File Folder to the next group and repeated the process, but the speaker for the group was changed each time until all students had a chance to speak.
By the end you should have heard each Key Person of the Revolution speak a few times.
