American Revolution Webquest
Students will gain basic knowledge about the American Revolution by completing an internet-based worksheet. The American Revolution webquest uses an amazing virtual museum website by American Revolution Center.

The webquest contains fifty-five questions and is a great way to introduce or review the key facts and events of the American Revolution. An answer sheet is included for the teacher.

My students love examining the American Revolution War artifacts and listening to the podcasts from the website. I usually use this activity as a review activity for my students and it takes at least one class period, but usually two class periods for my students to complete the webquest. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students.
Thanks for your interest,
