Learn about the Boston Tea Party and the American Revolution without leaving the classroom! Students play an active role debating taxation without representation, and the issues that pushed Massachusetts down the road to revolution. Your class will storm aboard one of our eighteenth century replica vessels and cast off the yoke of tyranny by destroying the Crown’s tea. They will get a taste of what life was like in the eighteenth century by exploring below decks on board one the vessels that moored at Griffin’s Wharf that fateful night. Finally, students will discover how the Sons of Liberty successfully overcame obstacles to accomplish their goals, and achieve independence. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to teach your class about the single most important event leading up to the American Revolution!
