PRACTICE AND APPLICATION:

(Meaningful activities, interaction, strategies, practice and application, feedback)

We will begin the lesson by showing the student the online interactive Boston Tea Party activity. After reading and reviewing this activity, we will move on to our vocabulary word review. Then we will go to our timeline to help clarify the timeline of the Boston Tea Party. Then we will begin the activity by going over the vocabulary words we reviewed. The definitions will be on the tags of tea bags and the tea cups will have the vocabulary words on them. The student will place the tea bags in the correct cups.The student will fill out a graphic organizer about the Boston Tea Party. After the student is done he will receive an "old" piece of paper that he will use to write a letter to King George III as if he were a member of the Sons of Liberty who participated in the Boston Tea Party. The student will explain in the letter who he is, why they dumped the tea into the harbor, and what they want from the King.

REVIEW AND ASSESSMENT:

(Review objectives and vocabulary, assess learning)

The completed letters can be shared and displayed in the room. Assessment of skills can be measured by the answers given during the vocabulary activity and response that the student wrote in the graphic organizer and letter.
