Activity Overview


Battles are where wars are won or lost. It is important that students understand what was important about each battle and where it took place in the greater timeline of the American Revolution battles. Students should select from an array of battles (or defined list if preferable) to create a timeline of events and battles that occurred throughout the revolution. This storyboard is meant to serve as a holistic narrative to the fighting that occurred throughout the revolution.

Students should select battles, place them in chronological order, and then explain the following:

  • Who was the winner/loser of this battle?
  • Where did the battle take place?
  • How many casualties, injured, captured, etc. were there as a result of this battle?
  • How did it effect the American Revolution overall, or, more specifically, America’s victory?

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 adjust the instructions accordingly.


Extended Activity

Students can create a chronological timeline of American wars since the revolution. This will help serve as a connective timeline to what America has experienced in terms of warfare since our very beginnings. Include a list of wars (or a defined list) for them to put in order, and utilize the same summative explanatory points in the aforementioned activity.
