History Comes Alive at Indian Rock Elementary

Submitted by Mrs. Stephanie Crumbling

American history came to life at Indian Rock Elementary School on December 8. Students in Mrs. Crumbling’s and Mrs. Guyer’s fifth grade Social Studies classes learned about the American Revolution through a variety of activities, including being “taxed” using M & M’s. Next, students created a Google Docs slide for each of the events leading up to and including the war. Students identified the when, where, who, what, and why of each event to create a chronological timeline. Students then wrote scripts and created performances, complete with costumes and props, for their assigned event. Finally, each event of the Revolution was brought to life in a dramatic, sometimes humorous, performance for parents and guests. We represent AMERICA!
