Loyalist or Patriot

       We have been diligently working on discovering the differences between Loyalists and Patriots living in the colonies My students got together in groups to discuss the differences and similarities.  We also talked about things that each group might say in relation to the idea of independence from Great Britain. This brainstorming session lasted about ten minutes.
         I found this freebie from Ginger Snaps. It worked very well for my 5th graders.

It was perfect for our comparison purposes.  Here are a few examples our my students' work. I gave the choice of either drawing a portrait, using a photo copy from a book, or printing a picture from the internet.  I found some paper with an interesting border to add a little more interest.  My students went to work in class.



                
        I was pleased with their knowledge and their work.  

What topics are compared in your class?  What strategy do you use?
