In this activity your students will:

2) Complete a graphic organizer that requires students to compare the different perspectives of what happened on that bloody day in 1770.

3) Exit Card activity: Complete a comparison sensory figure: Colonists V. Redcoats

Essential Question

"Based on the evidence, should the colonists have classified the events of March 5, 1770 as a "massacre" and allowed themselves to use this event as a contributing justification for war with their king? Were the colonists over-exaggerating?"

**Includes a GOOGLE and Traditional version for your use!

About: Learning is a Passion Store - I have taught 6th-12th grade during my 20 year teaching career. I prefer to use lessons in my teaching practice that allow my students to become facilitators and active participants in their own learning rather than merely an audience of "my show". I love to create hands- on, interactive activities that really engage my students in the learning process.
