|Example of ABC page|
As I searched for something new for my kids to do this year, I came across Mr. Viens project called ABC of American Revolution project. While this project was geared towards 8th graders, I was able to make a few tweaks to suit my 5th graders. However, I must admit I didn't cut out too much and was highly impressed with what was turned into me. Students were required to first research the American Revolution using plain old fashion books. They had their history textbook as well as about 15 books I have that have to do with the revolution. Just like the ABC book series, they had to create a page for each letter of the alphabet. There were some guidelines though - they needed to have the following:
- 10 significant people of the American Revolution (listed in red on TOC)
- 3 geographical locations (listed in green on TOC)
- 7 key events (listed in blue on TOC)
- 6 concepts (listed in purple on TOC)

The final outcome of the books were pretty awesome and I'll admit they came up with some information that I didn't even know.

Now that we are done with this, we get to go on our totally awesome field trip to Riley's Farm to experience the American Revolution.
What cool and fun projects do you do for the American Revolution?
