Enrichment Activity: The Revolutionary Era - The Boston Tea Party - Stuff You Missed in History Class Podcast

As we learn about the Revolutionary era, many of the incidents that led to it are well known.  Still, there are always details we could learn about the Stamp Act, Sons of Liberty, Boston Massacre, or Boston Tea Party.  Occurring in December 1773, the Boston Tea Part, as it became known, ended up being the final straw for Britain.  It had to rein in the "rabble" of Boston.  The imperial powers acted both swiftly and, in their minds, definitively.  Still, were the colonial protesters justified? Perhaps they were, and perhaps not.  Listen to the podcast on the Boston Tea Party.

When you're done listening, complete the Response and Reflection Form to earn some extra credit.  This must be completed by the Unit 3 Test.
