Voices of the Revolution

Did the American Revolution have more than two sides?

Project Description

In this project, students investigate the causes and outcome of the American Revolutionary War by looking at it not only from the perspective of the American colonial leaders and the British, but the French, indigenous people, enslaved Africans, and members of various social classes in the colonies. As historians, they plan, write, and produce engaging educational podcasts to share online with other fifth graders around the country.
