On July 4, 1776, our founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence to relieve our country of British rule. The colonists were tired of being bossed around by King George. In this seminar you will learn about one of the ways the colonists rebelled against the high taxes from Great Britain--the Boston Tea Party. By the end of this seminar, you will be able to construct support for the Boston Tea Party as a necessary risk taken by the colonists on the road to freedom.Standards5.1.4 D Identify key ideas about government found in significant documents: Declaration of Independence, United States Constitution, Bill of Rights, Pennsylvania Constitution

I think this is such a great lesson plan! It uses the 5 E’s as well as adding expression at the end of the lesson. It is engaging and allowing them to discover what it would be like during the Boston Tea Party time period. It allows the students to be creative as well and I think that is very important these days in the classroom. Overall great lesson!
