Day 22 - Causes of the American Revolution (cont'd)

Progress reports were sent home today.

We will begin today by getting in groups and completing a Flash Card Activity where the students will try to answer 30 review questions on the Early Colonial Period.

Next, in those same groups, the students will brainstorm and write down all the causes of the American Revolution they can think of and then prioritize the list from most important to least.  Then, as a class, we will compile a class list of most important events that led to the Revolutionary War.
