Fourth graders are exploring the Colonial and Revolutionary Periods. In this exciting unit we are thinking about what it means to be free. Students explore the events that led to the war with Great Britain. They analyze the role New York had in the American Revolution.
The events during the war are discussed and students determine what side they would be on. Students explore the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
We use tools like videos, researching and reading. Also, we explore this period by taking field study trips to discover even more facts and details during this time period.
