Augmented Reality and the American Revolution

If you're teaching the American Revolution and you're looking for a fun project that integrates tech and meaningful learning, look no further! My latest item is a timeline activity for the Beginning of the American Revolution (Stamp Acts-Declaration of Independence).

It includes 9 event cards describing a different pivotal event leading to the American Revolution, 9 date cards matching the events, and a recording sheet. Each date also includes Augmented Reality leading to videos to assist the students in ordering the cards or self-checking (depending on student level). Even if you don't have technology in your classroom, this can still be a meaningful learning activity. If you do have technology, learning is enhanced with helpful digital media.

Instructions for setting up and using the embedded technology are included in the product, but you can see how easy it is by watching the video below!


If you're interesting in checking out my Augmented Reality Timeline Activity: The Beginning of the American Revolution, click the link or the picture below!



Happy Spring!
