Exploring the American Revolution through digital project work

Use these examples of projects created by students and tweets from teachers to inspire project work for the American Revolution in your classroom.

Creative use of technology can engage students, and help you integrate your iPads, PCs, or Chromebooks into the curriculum.

These samples were created by students and classrooms using Wixie.


Trading Cards

As students research famous, and not so famous, figures in the American Revolution, have them summarize their findings in the form of a trading card.


Historical Newsletter

To help students better understand the perspectives of those experiencing the revolution, have them develop newsletters that recall and retell historic events.


Wanted Posters

Students create Wanted posters for people considered "outlaws" by either the British or Patriots.


Journey Journals

Students connect with the past as they write a first-person account of events in history.


Graphic Organizers

Students use graphic organizers like clusters, timelines, venn diagrams and more to organize their research and thinking.


Loyalist vs. Patriot Debate

Students can create digital debates between patriots and loyalist to demonstrate their understanding of the views held by each side and the reasons behind them.


Keep a dairy

Get students to take on the role of someone living during the American Revolution and empathize with their experience. Ask them to share their perspective through a diary or scrapbook that shares their feelings and perspective on the events of the time.
