Activity Overview


A T Chart is the perfect way to compare two sides of a debate or battle. When studying the forces involved in the American Revolution, it's helpful for students to have this visual comparison on hand. The war was full of advantages and disadvantages for both sides. What served as an advantage to the American forces in the war consequently often served as a disadvantage to the British and vice versa.

In this activity, students will make a T Chart to explain and analyze the advantages and disadvantages of both American and British forces during the revolution. By creating a grid to display a contextual and visual comparative of both forces, students will better gain an understanding as to the manner of how the war was fought and, eventually, won.

Some of the things students can compare include

  • The Will and Drive to Fight
  • Geography and Landscape
  • Military Technology
  • Forces and Men
  • Fighting Style
  • Aid and Assistance
