This is a great resource to use after students have been taught about the causes of the American Revolution. It is free to download, and the download includes directions, role cards, and tax cards to simulate taxing in the colonies. This is a great activity for 5th graders, but can be adapted to meet the needs of several other grade levels. The game reviews the Stamp Act, the Tea Act, the Sugar Act, and the Townshend Act. This game encourages students to be active participants of their learning and it is a great way for students to apply their knowledge! The game is estimated to take 45 minutes so it is very ideal to use during a standard class period.
