“Declaring Your Independence”
Recommended for 3rd – 8th grades
What inspired colonists to risk their lives to gain independence? Students address this question as they act out a modern day situation relating to one of the taxes or acts leading up to the American Revolution. In the galleries, students work on investigation guides to discover groups who fought for their independence throughout American history. History comes to life, as students view a performance such as “Patriots or Traitors”, “Molly Pitcher” or “The Battle of Trenton.”
