For more of my own sake than any other reason, I wanted to make compilation of resources we've used to make the Revolutionary War learning time the fun party time that it has been.
Ben Bryan: Morgan Rifleman
Revolutionary War on Wednesday
If You lived at the Time of the American Revolution
The Winter of Red Snow:The Revolutionary War Diary of Abigail Jane Stewart
Role playing colonists, native Americans, soldiers, British officers. This is an activity the kids have just picked up on their own as we've been learning about this time period in history.
Liberty's Kids: The Boston Tea Party
Schoolhouse Rock: The Shot Heard Round the World
Liberty's Kids: Midnight Ride
