Title: Point of View of the American Revolution
Digital Tool: Edmodo
Digital Tool Description: Students will use Edmodo to post their opinions on the American Revolution, such as what the significant causes of the American Revolution were and how the American Revolution could have been avoided. Students will describe the events that led to the American Revolution on Edmodo.
Title: Put Yourself in Their Shoes
Digital Tool: Mission US: Think Fast! About the Past App for iPad
Digital Tool Description: This trip lets your students take a step back into a time in history when our nation faced big changes.
Students will be able to complete two missions using this great app. One mission lets them explore life as an apprentice during the time of the American Revolution. The other mission allows them to take part in helping to free a slave via the Underground Railroad.
In this app, students are in a race against time. They are given a limit of 5 minutes to answer a certain number of questions correctly in order to complete the challenge.
This app would be a great extension activity to use after teaching the lesson plan, "Yo! The Slaves Have Gotta Go."
