Activity Overview


In the early years, the growth of the United States was overshadowed by a number of battles and wars. Many of these were due to expansion, or because our nation felt the urge protect those who were in need of assistance. Whatever the cause, the effects of these conflicts undeniably shaped our nation.

When teaching a unit on a specific war or battle, have students storyboard important information and implications, including the outcomes of the armistice, defeat, or victory. In the example storyboard above, students were asked to depict and explain the following questions in each corresponding cell:


  • What was the Conflict?
  • When and where was the conflict?
  • What were the primary causes of the conflict?
  • Who was involved in the conflict?
  • What was the conflict's immediate outcome?
  • What were the long-term outcomes?

The example and the instructions ask students to examine at the significance of the Boston Tea Party, but students can select any battle or event during the timeline of the war to analyze, and you can alter the instructions at any time! For an alternate approach to this activity, students can also use a spider map and the 5Ws (who, what when, where, why).
