Lapbook Components 1. American Revolution Timeline Accordion Book – Each student will need one copy of the timeline foldable. Follow the directions to cut, paste, and fold it to make an accordion book. Paste it in the top corner of the open lapbook. Students need to include the following events on their timeline. They must put each event in order, include the year that the event occurred, and give a brief description of the event and why it was important to the American Revolution. * * * * * * * * * Sugar Act Stamp Act Boston Massacre Boston Tea Party Declaration of Independence British Surrender at Yorktown Treaty of Paris signed Battles of Lexington and Concord 1st Continental Congress Meets 2. Events that Led to the American Revolution Petal Book – Students will first cut out the petal book on the solid lines. There were many events that led up to and were causes of the American Revolution. Students are to pick six that they feel were important and write a brief description of each on the petals. Make sure that students explain why each event led to the revolution. Fold each petal in on the dotted lines, glue the back of the center to the lapbook. Students should label the front of the petal and may want to color the petals using crayons or colored pencils. Copyright © by Nasreen Wahid. All Rights Reserved. 3. Life in the Battlefield Flap Book – Students will cut out the flap book and on all solid lines, then fold in half along the center dotted line. Make sure that students cut along the lines to separate the three sections, then they can fold on the lighter dotted line. Carefully glue down the “Life on the Battlefield” section only. Students will choose three items that a soldier would have had with them in battle (uniform, leather wallet, canteen, powder horn, etc.) The Eyewitness American Revolution book is a good source for this book. On the front of each flap students will write the name of the item they chose as well as draw and color a picture of the item. On the inside of the flap students will describe the item and why it was needed by the soldier while on the battlefield. 4. Important People Pocket and Cards – Students will cut out the pocket on all solid lines then fold on all dotted lines. The flaps should fold behind the back piece and can be glued in place before gluing the pocket to the flapbook. Print the important people cards onto cardstock and have students cut them apart. They will choose four of the following important people to research and make a card for. On the blank side of the card students will draw a frame and colored picture of the important person. On the back they will complete the required details. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Crispus Attucks Mercy Otis Warren George Washington Patrick Henry Theyendanegea Thomas Jefferson Bernardo de Galvez Mary Ludwig Hays MacCauley Samuel Adams John Hancock Paul Revere Benjamin Franklin John Adams Phillis Wheatley Thomas Paine Martha Washington Abigail Adams Copyright © by Nasreen Wahid.

On the blank strips students will choose one of the following vocabulary words for each. They will write the vocabulary word, definition (in their own words) on the front side, and a meaningful sentence on the back. When students have completed their strips they will layer them one on top of the other (a great time to have them practice alphabetical order too!) and place the cover strip on top. Using a pencil have students mark the spot on their lapbook where the brad for the fan will go, then punch a hole in the lapbook on that mark. Have them place the brad through the strips and the hole to keep the fan book in place. * * * * * * * * * boycott proclamation treason repeal protest representation monopoly petition revolution 6. Continental Army vs. British Army Flap Book – Students will cut out the flap book on all solid lines then fold in half on the dotted line. Under each flap students will write details that they learned about each of the armies. They might include that the Continental Army had mainly farmers who had no military experience while the British Army was made up of experienced soldiers. Copyright © by Nasreen Wahid.

Major Battles of the Revolutionary War Tri-fold – Students will cut out the tri-fold on the solid lines and fold on the dotted lines. The cover with the title should be folded last so that it is visible. The back of the center will be glued into the lapbook. Have students color in the explosions on the key, blue for Continental Army victories and red for British Army victories. On the inside of the tri-fold students will sketch the thirteen colonies. Then they will choose four major battles of the Revolutionary War. At the location for each battle students will draw the explosion with the correct color indicating the victorious side. They will also label the battle with: the date, location, and name of the battle. 8. Rubric and Reflection – Students will cut apart the rubric and reflection pages. After filling out the reflection students will glue it to the back of their lapbook. Students will use the rubric as a checklist to ensure that they have completed all of the mini-books/foldables. They will turn this rubric in with their lapbook. 9. Performance Assessment – The lapbook is a great tool for a quick oral assessment of students. Ask students 3-5 questions about the information that they included in their lapbook to check for understanding. Allow them to use their lapbook as a resource for the oral quiz, or for any other formal assessment that you may give on the topic. Copyright © by Nasreen Wahid. All Rights Reserved.
