Program Details


1) Students will meet two characters who were involved in the Boston Tea Party who offer to tell them some amusing and interesting anecdotes from the night of the destruction of the tea.
2) The characters propose a game, and the class is split up into three or six teams dependent on the size of the classroom.
3) The game is broken into three rounds where the students will listen to the anecdotes, take notes, and answer a series of questions.
4) During the question sessions, teams can earn points by answering correctly and at the end the team that has the highest score is the winner.
5) After the winner is declared, there will be time for the students to ask the characters questions.


Participants will:

- Learn some of the lesser known stories from the night of the Boston Tea Party.
- Engage in active listening to remember facts from the stories.
- Connect with some of the individuals who made up the group destroying the tea and learn that the Boston Tea Party was not perpetrated by a faceless mob, but by real people.
