Activity Overview


For this activity, students will create a storyboard outlining the major events leading up to, and the events of the Battle of Lexington and Concord. They should detail both the British and American actions that contributed to the beginning of America’s fight for independence. By looking at both country's actions, students will gain a holistic perspective as to how events unfolded and what ultimately resulted in the battle. This will also provide a side-by-side, visual narrative of these events to allow students to better understand both sides of the story.


Extended Activity

Have students research and complete a storyboard from another early American Revolutionary battle. This will further allow students to see strategies, effects, and significance of other battles. It can also serve as a comparative to both British and American actions from the Battle of Lexington and Concord.
