Activity Overview


The signing of the Treaty of Paris finally ended the war between Britain and the United States. After declaring independence from Britain and then fighting for several years, the end of the war was very welcome. Timelines are a great way to detail the important events between the Battle of Yorktown (1781) to the eventual signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1783. By plotting events, starting with the Battle of Yorktown, students will continue to explain and analyze key strategies, events, and figures of the revolution.

For an alternative to the timeline layout, have students create a timeline poster to incorporate into a presentation or gallery walk. You can add more than one template to this assignment to give students lots of options, and update the instructions accordingly.
