I thought that this lesson plan seemed to cover all necessary when educating students in the 5-8 grade range. It allowed students to learn in a variety of ways, and it makes it simple for teachers to access and use it in the classroom. I really like the incorporation of the book Jonny Tremain as well. A student's interest might be sparked by the reading of this book before the lesson is started, and it is a good way to introduce the topic of the American Revolution. I will definitely try and use this in my classroom!
