The driving question of the video is 'what factors and battles led the Americans to victory in the Revolutionary War?" The video teaches the major battles-Lexington & Concord,Bunker Hill, Long Island, Trenton, Saratoga, and Yorktown. But it also teaches how Washington was able to keep the army together despite blunders and a near-total loss of hope including the suffering atValley Forge. Students learn how the Continental Army, with support from the French, was finally able to achieve independence in theTreaty of Paris. A perfect supplement or replacement for a textbook reading or lecture when teaching the Revolutionary War!
***The lessons cover state-standards while making sure the content is still interesting.
