Calling all 5th graders!
Put yourself in the shoes of the character you researched and created in Voki. Imagine you were living in colonial times in the 1770’s, with all the events we are studying in class unfolding around you.
The British government declares its right to tax the colonies. All around you people are discussing the news. Do you agree or disagree? Do you have strong feelings about the issue?
Write a comment in character stating your position and giving evidence to support your point of view. Sign your comment with your colonial character’s name. If you prefer, just be yourself!
Have fun with this! Make it dramatic! I’m looking forward to seeing your comments!
