Hands on is the best way for students to develop a deep understanding of how things work, and that's exactly what they will do with this exciting activity! Students will form the 3 branches of government and work together to propose, pass, and interpret laws for their school.
Of course we needed to write the "My Side of the Story" pieces. The students decided if they were a Patriot or Loyalist and why, after reading both If You Lived At The Time Of The American Revolution and The Night the Revolution Began (which is about the Boston Tea Party). We used tea to age the papers...which the students LOVED!
