Teaching the American Revolution Through Play
We all know the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776, but too often we forget that the colonies were almost a year into the Revolutionary War by the time of the signing. Can you replicate historical success? Or will your colonies fall back under British rule? Building upon 1775: Rebellion, an award winning board game, this book presents a week-long unit with detailed lesson plans, primary source documents, and additional instructional resources for teaching the American Revolution through play. Exclusive print-and-play game “Intolerable Acts” designed for classroom use by Brian Mayer and Christopher Harris. Game: 1775: Rebellion. Beau Beckett, Jeph Stahl. Academy Games, 2013.
