The Acts Informational Pamphlets

We have been studying the causes of the Revolutionary War. Some of the main causes of this war are the number of Acts that were placed on the colonists.  These Acts include: Sugar, Stamp, Townshend, Tea, Coercive, and Intolerable Acts.  One way the colonists communicated with each other were through pamphlets. Students were given the task of creating a pamphlet to make the colonists aware of these taxes.  Below are several examples of the pamphlets students created! I think they did an amazing job!

In the first box the students had to explain the act.  In the second box they had to explain why the act was fair.  The third box required students to give a call to action. Finally, in the last box students had to include a graphic or illustration.
