Revolutionary War Biography Poster

Chose a person, who was famous or well-known, that lived during the Revolutionary War period. Some examples of people are listed below, but you may choose someone who is or is not on the list. Next, research about the person you selected. You may use a book or an internet source, but you must site where you found this information on the back of your poster. Below is the rubric I will use to grade your project. Please make sure all the items are on the front of your poster. On the back, you must have your name and list the website or the book title (or both) showing where you found your information. You will present your information to the class. Have fun, I can’t wait to see your finished project. This will count as 2 daily grades in Social Studies. If you have any questions you can ask me in class or if parents have questions email me at tanya.musselwhite@dcsms.org
