This goes along with the book Redcoats and Petticoats by Katherine Kirkpatrick and includes various activities for upper elementary grades such as fact or opinions, summarizing, and making inferences, as well as many other literacy activities. This resource is nice for your American Revolution unit.
Students will color and doodle as they learn about the American Revolution (Revolutionary War or War for Independence). These graphic doodles notes summarize the events that led to the revolution, Tories v. Patriots, 2nd Continental Congress, advantages and disadvantages of the British and Americans, important British and American leaders, important battles, and the Treaty of Paris 1783. Great for use with your 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th grade classroom or homeschool students! $
Trace the "Steps" to the American Revolution-- Could definitely be used for the Civil War unit or other units. One idea- assign each student an event to research. Have them copy their foot on a piece of paper and then use the feet to form a timeline.
