Show how one thing led to another with these free resources exploring the causes of the American Revolution: 

Differing Points of View - Visit Project Look Sharp for an elementary teaching kit on the Causes of the American Revolution. For each cause, there's a downloadable teacher's guide and student worksheet, plus a list of supplementary resources. The materials include accounts of incidents from different viewpoints -- for example, a description of the Boston Massacre from both the colonist and British perspectives. Other lessons include analyzing a Phyllis Wheatley poem, and comparing two 18th century "George" portraits (George Washington and King George III).

Chain Reaction: Make various mini lapbooks and foldables for each cause using this Hands-On-History download. Includes instructions for: a Q & A flip book on taxes; Boston Tea Party step book; mini book of Paul Revere's ride; and other projects.

  

Download a Grade 4 reader on the American Revolution, with nine chapters. Download the accompanying Activity Book, with review questions, vocabulary, grammar, and writing activities.
