This week we continued using Liberty’s Kids to teach History in our Co-Op. Last week we focused on The Boston Tea Party. This week we are focusing on The Intolerable Acts. I have put together another great list of resources filled with Intolerable Acts Lesson ideas for you so that you can have fun teaching them too.
Liberty’s Kids Intolerable Acts Lessons
I also put together this fun pack for you.
Intolerable Acts Printable Pack – Included is a newspaper template for your children to share the news of the new acts in place. There is also a letter template to write parliament about the injustice and a comic template to draw about what they have learned.
Using this printable pack would help you to learn more about the Intolerable Acts. I highly recommend watching Liberty’s Kids as a part of the lesson. They really do a great job of bringing the story to life in a fun way kids can engage with.
Viewing Guide from Summer Ramsey
“This viewing guide is designed for the students to answer questions as they watch Episode 2 of Liberty’s Kids program, titled “The Intolerable Acts.” Using this viewing guide, students will be asked to activate prior knowledge, fill in the blanks as they watch the video, and then later think about what they have learned or want to learn. The viewing guide is designed to be printed on one sheet, using the front and the back. Answer key is included.”
Vocabulary Wheel from Aggie Teacher Creations
“I used these materials to teach my 5th graders about the Intolerable or Coercive Acts. We discussed the PowerPoint together (background clipart was found on TpT under something like “Fun Fourth of July Fonts– apologies for not being able to find the poster!), then completed the activity included on the last slides. The activity includes an “Intolerable Acts Wheel”, in which students match each Act’s definition to its name. As an extension, we reviewed Patriots and Loyalists, and wrote mini-speeches in each bubble attached on the last slide.”
Fact Sheets from Land of the Brave
“This article on the Intolerable Acts in Colonial America provides fast facts and information about the effects of these punishing laws.”
