It was the 1770s, and the Daughters of Liberty were determined to make their political viewpoints clearly understood. With this lesson, your students will discover what they did and how they did it.
The main story is cleverly presented using narrated storyboards. Students who might find history a bit boring, or those who are reluctant readers, will find this format especially helpful and engaging. All other videos are "live-action".
There's a lot in here! Videos demonstrate the spinning wheel and how to use a drop spindle. A variety of activities, including writing and role-playing, encourage insights and spark discussion on how to engage with people of differing viewpoints. Extra resource pages provide more ways the spinning wheel has become a part of our culture through literature and music. And of course, detailed notes for the educator and answer key are included.
