Spies of The Revolutionary War Writing Lessons and Lapbook - Review & Giveaway!

Last year my 9 year old daughter and I reviewed  New Millennium Girls Writing Bundle  by Jan May and had a blast!  Unfortunately my 12 year old son was bummed that there wasn't a "less girlie" study for him.  One filled with spying, intrigue, war and strategy.  Kind of like the new Spies of the Revolutionary War Writing Lessons & Lapbook!


Spies of The Revolutionary War Writing Lessons and Lapbook
Step back in history, grab your quill pen and parchment and live like a spy during the American Revolutionary War.

Spies of Revolutionary War contains 6 unit lessons to be worked on once or twice a week with educational, writing and hands-on activities such as journaling, role playing, cipher writing, brainstorming for plot, crafts and more.  Additionally, exercises are provided to aid in style and adding more detail.

In preparation for writing, pre-Revolutionary War background information is given as far as historical data and biographies of key players.  Then there are step by step instructions on how to create a spy character including drawing a picture of your spy.


To help aid the creative process for those who are writing resistant, after each section, a writing time activity is included where you add a paragraph from where you previously left off.

The lapbook portion of this study is easy to put together.  Colorful and captivating!  Included are places for Revolutionary War info and the created spy character.

There's just enough detail and activity to hold a boy's interest!  And believe me, I know one 12 year old that is VERY interested!

  10. With my teen, yes, we've covered the revolution thoroughly, but with my daughter and younger son, no, we've only touched on it. This would be great to have for my younger boy! Thanks for the opportunity!
