ABC Book of the
American Revolution

You will create an ABC book describing important aspects of the Revolutionary War and American independence. You may use your notebook or any other resources for this project.

A list of terms and names has been provided for you, or you may choose your own. Choose one term or name for each letter, write a description of its importance, and draw an illustration. You do not need to include the letters Q, X, or Z, but you may choose to do so.

Requirements
1) All information must be accurate and relative to the American Revolution. You must explain the term, person, place, event, or thing and how it was important to the American Revolution.
2) Each letter should have its own page, and all writing and illustrations must be neat and attractive.
3) You must include a cover with a title, an illustration, and your name.
4) You must also write a summary about the American Revolution that will inspire interest in potential readers. This summary should be placed on the back cover.
5) All work will be typed or written neatly and attractive. Please check for spelling and grammar errors.

Tip: This project requires a lot of effort, so you should start right away! Work that is rushed, sloppy, and/or incomplete will be reflected in your grade.

Have fun and let your creativity show!
