The American Revolution: An Interactive Map

This website is an awesome resource for students to learn about many of the major battles throughout the Revolutionary War.  This website is an interactive tutorial that walks students through what occurred during these major battles, who won the battles and how these battles, in particular, affected the war.  The tutorial is broken up into three sections, by year and location.  In order to advance to the next battle students must first locate the city where the battle occurred, indicate whether the Americans or British won this battle, and then get to read a short paragraph about the battle.  Under each box there are also active links to allow students to gain more information about this topic.  Overall, this website would be a great introductory lesson for a unit on the Revolutionary War.  It provides students with information in an interesting and engaging way and allows them to explore many of the important battles that would probably come up in discussion on the war.
