War of Independence Notes and Skits

To download this awesome resource, you must have a subscription. Already got one? Make sure you login.


3-part notes to help students understand the War of Independence. These notes include:

  • The objectives and strategies for the Americans and British
  • A brief history of the beginning of the war
  • Why America won
  • The outcomes of the war

Answers are included with this download.

A Google Slides to complement the notes is available here.

Also included are scripts for students to act out skits of pivotal moments of the War of Independence. These skits go along with part two of the notes on why America won. The skits cover the Battle of Long Island, the Battle of Trenton, the winter at Valley Forge, the Battles of Saratoga, the Franco-American alliance, and the Southern Campaign. Fair warning… these scripts are extremely cheesy.
