Created by Krysta Robbins This cyber lesson is intended for 5 th grade.
You are about to embark upon a journey as you experience the danger and excitement of Paul Revere’s life during the American Revolution. You will learn about Paul’s life as well as his decision to be an express rider during the American Revolution; a job that was not only important but also dangerous. Would you be able to make such a difficult decision? Would you handle the dangers of the job in the same way as Paul? Should Paul be considered a hero for his duties?
Reading journals Highlighter Pencil or erasable pen Colored Pencils Books: And Then What Happened, Paul Revere? Bernardo de Gálvez Mercy Otis Warren: A Woman of the Revolution Bunker’s Cove Deborah Sampson: Soldier of the Revolution You will choose 1 of these.
Visit the following website which shows a map of Paul Revere’s route (shown in blue). Click on the images to see photographs and information about his route. In your journal, explain at least three facts you learned about his journey from the map as well as at least two aspects of his journey you hope to learn more about in the reading. Paul’s Route
Using your background knowledge of the American Revolution and Paul Revere, record some predictions for the reading in your reading journal. First, predict what Paul’s duties will include as an express rider. Second, predict what some hardships Paul may come across on his trip. Third, make at least one prediction for the end of the biography. All your predictions must be supported with clear explanations as to why you feel that way.
As you read the story, record the major events that occur during Paul’s ride. Provide details about the events based on the story. These recordings will become a timeline later. As you read, if any of your earlier predictions prove to be true, highlight them and write the page number on which they were proved true. Add more predictions as you read the story. Record new predictions in a different color pen. Watch a video of the story, And Then What Happened, Paul Revere? by clicking on Paul below. Add any more information you learn after hearing it a second time to your timeline.
With a partner, go through the major events you both recorded during the reading of the story. Together, create a timeline of Paul Revere’s ride. Your timeline must have at least five major events from his ride as well as plenty of details to explain those events. Click on the moon below to create your interactive timeline of Paul Revere’s midnight ride! After you print it out, create pictures on your timeline where appropriate to make it colorful and visually appealing.
Read one of the following leveled books from our reading program: Mercy Otis Warren: A Woman of the Revolution Bernardo de Gálvez Deborah Sampson: Soldier of the Revolution Bunker’s Cove Using the interactive Venn diagram provided (use the link below), complete a Venn diagram. This diagram will compare and contrast Paul Revere to the person you read about in the leveled books.
CHOOSE ONE of the following activities: Visit the following website and write an online journal entry as if you were a child during the American Revolution. Include plenty of details about what you see and experience on a daily basis as well as what emotions you have about the war. Use details from Paul Revere’s ride to help explain the events of the war. Watch the 3-part movie, Midnight Ride. Take notes on the details the movie describes about Paul’s ride that were NOT in the story. Then write a journal entry of at least 3 paragraphs describing Paul’s ride using the NEWLY LEARNED DETAILS from the movie. Part 1 Part 2 Part 3

Overall, this cyber lesson is intended for students to complete independently. Lower ability readers would benefit from completing it in groups or with teacher guidance. This cyber lesson could be completed as a center, in computer lab, or segments can be displayed on a Smart Board for students to complete independently. Before Reading: You may want the students to go through the map either with your guidance or in groups, as some of syntax of Paul’s actual journal entries may be difficult for students, especially lower readers, to comprehend. During Reading: The movie can be viewed as a whole class to increase all students’ comprehension of the story. It also can serve as differentiation for lower readers to aid in their comprehension of the story if you do not feel all students need it. Beyond Reading: Lower readers would especially benefit from reading the leveled books in a guided reading format, but you may want to use that method with all students. Note: Deborah Sampson – below level, Bunker’s Cove – below level, Bernardo de Gálvez – on level, Mercy Otis Warren – above level Beyond Reading: The Liberty’s Kids movie would be great to watch as a whole class and discuss. Then students could make their choice for which activity they will complete.
