Revolutionary War for Kids

We learned about the major battles and the colonial leaders. We researched and reported on the involvement of women in the American Revolution. We learned how the French helped the colonists especially with their naval support by keeping the British away from the American coastline. Even though Americans fought courageously and Washington was a strong leader, students learned why the war for independence lasted eight years.

With international help, mainly from France, the Continental Army was a well-supplied and hard fighting force to be reckoned with as the British would soon find out.
