Class Description:

Saddle up for the most thrilling history lesson ever with Rush Revere and the First Patriots, the second book in Rush Limbaugh’s children’s adventure series which takes us to the time right before the start of the American Revolution. History teacher Rush Revere and talking horse Liberty take the time-traveling crew back in time to experience the first rumblings of American independence and meet exceptional Americans including Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry and ask the people who were there: What does freedom mean to you? Why do you want to break away from Britain’s rule? What was the secret signal that lead to the Boston Tea Party? and Why did people yell “Treason” when Patrick Henry spoke? Rush Revere takes on King George III of Great Britain in London! Middle School students Tommy, Freedom, and Cam team up to make sure snobby Elizabeth does not change history! Students will learn while laughing with snarky horse Liberty. See the spark that lit the fuse of the American Revolution in Rush Revere and the First Patriots! During co-op hour students will listen to the audio book, work on study guide (study guides will be provided), do a fun word search, and if time allows we will play a game. We will end our semester with a celebration in honor of our First Patriots!
