Pre War and Rev. War Packet
Deadline, 2/03, 320 points
How did the British - American colonies build toward a separation from England?
What Revolutionary War events were especially important in the shaping of America?
As the British presence in America began to grow conflicts arose. Conflicts between the mother country - England, and the colonies, and often between the colonists themselves. As a result the British settlers began moving and forming new kinds of governments. All the while, the colonies were overseen by charters, or permissions from the Crown, to establish and run their colonies.
Students will identify and describe the changing characteristics about the British - American colonies during this time period.
Students will identify and describe the key events and people of this time period.
You will probably find yourself using some work from your earlier assignments and their web pages as you work on your packet.
