Storyboard Text

  • Sugar Act
  • We need the money to repay for the French and Indian War!
  • Colonists! King George III has implemented a tax. This means that sugar, molasses, and liquor will be taxed! 
  • We need sugar! Taxing those won't help anyone!
  • That's what you say! How can we trust you'll actually use the money for that? This is unfair!
  • Stamp Act
  •  Are you kidding me? This new stamp act is the worst! I shouldn't have to pay for my Birth Certificate; it's illegal not to have it!
  • Even these playing cards have to be stamped! This is just plain ridiculous!
  • Boston Massacre
  • Stop in the name of the law!
  • Filthy Lobsters!
  • The Sugar Act was crucial to the formation of Independence because this was the first main tax placed upon the colonists. 
  • Tea Act
  • We may have repealed other taxes, but the tea act still stands!
  • Dressing up as Natives to destroy the tea was genius!
  • The Stamp Act was important to independence because this act was extremely unfair, and this created a thought in the back of colonists' minds that this was a pattern really a problem.
  • Boston Tea Party
  • The Boston Massacre was important to independence because this event sparked revolution in the colonists. The colonists believed that killing colonists was crossing the line of oppression. 
  • First Continental Congress
  • Thank you, everyone, for coming to Philadelphia to our First Continental Congress. Any thoughts on what we should do?
  • The tea act was crucial to the call for independence because this was the final straw that sparked the protests. Tea was a part of the colonists culture, so keeping the tea act was cruel.
  • But tea is part of our culture! You can't do this!
  • The Boston Tea Party was important to independence because it was the most threatening response the colonists had to a tax so far. 
  • Let's get rid of all 342 crates, Sons of Liberty!
  • The First Continental Congress was important to independence because this was a meeting to discuss a peaceful response to a tax, which is a big step towards independence because peacefully responding to an argument is civil.
  • Before we do anything rash, we should write a letter to King George III to tell him what we'd like to change. 
  • We should call this letter we wrote "Declaration of Rights and Grievances" to get our point across.
