Learning from the Source: Minutemen & the Start of the Revolution

Activity Guidelines

Gather minutemen-related primary sources and print them out or make them available to your primary students digitally.

As a class or in groups, have students review different primary sources and note what they see, think, and wonder.

Next, you may choose to have students review source bibliographic information or secondary source materials and note if any of their questions were answered, how their thinking has changed, and what new questions they have.

Then facilitate a group discussion that helps students make personal connections to their inquiries and discoveries.

Finally, have students create an individual or collaborative product that demonstrates their learning and makes a personal connection.
