LET'S PROTEST KING GEORGE! Creating rebellion posters against the Stamp Act and other taxes
This lesson will help students understand the conflict between the American colonists and England, as they learn about the anger of the colonists over new British laws - The Sugar Act, The Stamp Act, The Tea Act, and The Intolerable Acts. What were these laws and why would they cause enough anger to eventually lead to war with England?
What type of hardships did the colonists face by King George's various "ACTS" that he wrote into law? Why did they need the products that England was taxing, and also, how could they protest in a way that would be effective, possibly getting the King to change his mind?
