Season of Independence Teacher Resources
Use the links below to access modular activities and ready-made worksheets to help your students dig deeper into the spread of support for American independence from January to July of 1776. Each Unit is supported by one of the Big Ideas essays, as well as by the Season of Independence Glossary. Primary Source activities are woven throughout Units 1-8. Activities are geared towards students at the middle school level, but are written to support teacher flexibility in increasing or decreasing the challenge as appropriate for your students. See how these activities fit into national history standards using the Standards Alignment Chart.
