Title: Spies Like Us
Description:

In this learning activity, students will visit a website to gather information about the contributions of ordinary citizens including Nathan Hale, Daniel Taylor, and James Armistead during the American Revolution. These ordinary citizens were part of a unique group called The Culper Spy Ring, who supported the American Revolution by sending secret messages to George Washington about the British Army's plans. After reading about these men and women who risked their lives during the American Revolution, the students will make "invisible ink" and send their own "revolutionary warnings" to each other.

This alignment is a result of the ALEX Resource Development Summit.
