Virtual Tour

Location (Battles)ActivityGoogle Earth Content
1. Lexington and Concord (Arlington, Massachusetts; Middlesex, Mass).
Read the poem, "Paul Revere's Ride" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. After reading the poem, students will write their own poem about either the battle of Lexington and Concord or Paul Revere.
2. Ticonderoga (Ticonderoga, NY).
Participate in a play where no shots are fired in the seizing of the British fort, Fort Ticonderoga. The students could be put into groups that learn in depth about the people who led the battle, participated in it, etc.
3. Saratoga (Saratoga, NY).
Make a diorama or poster depicting their favorite part of the battle at Saratoga.
4. Valley Forge (Valley Forge, Pa).
Debate between Washington and his troops (he wanted them to persist and not give up when they were going through a hard time). Some of the troops did not want to keep going.
