American Revolution Project


This project is designed to give you the student an appreciation for some of the founding principles of our nation. Primarily the idea of sacrifice.

How do study the American Revolutionary War thematically based on the idea of sacrifice??


  1. Choose five events, individuals, or battles that you would like to learn more about.
  2. Become an EXPERT in those five areas! Accumulate as much information as possible about those five topics.
  3. Identify in those events the theme of sacrifice. Which events, people, or battles exemplify sacrifice? Or the lack there of. :-)
  4. How could these events be a model for teaching about sacrifice in today's culture? Do people today have an understanding of past sacrifices experienced for their benefit?
  5. Find a way to present what you've learned.
