Activity Overview


The Battle of Bunker Hill serves as a great connector to the Battle of Lexington and Concord because it exemplifies the strength of the British as well as the growing confidence and abilities of the Americans, despite their defeat. Students will also be interested to learn that the battle was actually fought at Breed's Hill, not too far from Bunker Hill.

Here, students will create a spider map to visualize the significance of the Battle of Bunker Hill. By defining and explaining the five Ws (who, what, when, where, and why) of the battle, students will be able to analyze key strategies, figures, and effects of the battle for both the British and American colonists. Additionally, this will also expose students to key figures for both forces and what their roles were in the early years of the revolution.
