This activity was done the day after our 5th graders experienced the Boston Tea Party. We SKYPED with the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum. They each portrayed either a Loyalist or a Patriot.

5th grade Social Studies has been a huge part of my life. The American Revolution and the events leading up to it are so much fun to teach.
Please leave a comment. I'd love hear your thoughts.
