What Do You Think?

| 23 Comments

Hey students! I hope you are enjoying our lessons about the Revolutionary War! As you know, many of the colonists were Patriots who believed that the colonies should be free from Britain and have their own laws and ways of life. Other colonists remained loyal to King George III and thought the Patriots were disrespectful. They believed that they should not question authority! These people were known as Loyalists. Finally, there was a fraction of people who were able to see both sides and remained neutral. Where do you think your beliefs would land? Would you have been a Patriot, a Loyalist or neutral! Comment below with your response and explain why you chose what you did!

  18. I would be a Patriot because British should not be taxing the colonist just to show whos boss!! :)

  19. I think i would have been a nuetral because, its not really right that the kind is treating the people like this.

  22. i would be a pairiot because the people that took money shouldent have because what if a family was poor and didnt’t have much money? so i really would be sooooo mad if that happend to me so that uis my opinion the loyalists on the other hand were not good people to the king they are but to original people they were not very good to any one so that is my opinion!!!!! love you mrs lesser!!!!!! best teacher ever :)
