1. My famous person that I researched about was Nathanael Greene. He was most famous for fighting in the revolutionary war as a major general for the continental army. His most famous battle he fought in was probably the Battle at Guilford Court house.
2. Because they can learn about what it was like back then in their history. Also how the person thought about what it was like back then.
3. Making the backpack was probably the hardest thing I did to complete the project. It was hard because he was a general in the army and I don't think he carried very much because he had to be light so he could move around faster.
4. It made me fell very proud of my self and independent. It made me feel this way because I did it all by myself without very much help from adults so I know that I can do stuff by myself pretty well. Also made me feel proud for meeting all the deadlines.
The tug of war activity was like a metaphor for the Revolutionary War because at the start of the war Great Britain won a lot of early battles because they had more troops just like at the start of our tug-of-rope activity. Then at the end of the war colonies got more troops and the war ended at a tie,but the colonies still won because Great Britain had to win to get their land from the colonies. That happened in our tug-of-war activity.Also the Red team was supposably the tallest and strongest like Great Britian and The blue team was supposably the smallest and weakest representing the colonies.
There was also another team that was the white team they were representing France or Spain coming to help the colonies. The white team had to come in late because they had to cross the Atlantic Ocean. Also the blue team got a reward if they won because in the Revolutionary War the colonies got to keep their land.
Their was one kid on the blue team ( Tucker ) that didn't get a prize because he was a slave for the colonies so he didn't get a prize. The White team cheered for the colonies before they came to help because they didn't like Great Britain so they wanted the colonies to win. Also part of the Red team had to come late because some of England's troops have not came over so they had to cross the ocean to get to the war.
Finally the Red team had to get the rope passed the bag because they to win the war to get the land and the colonies just had to prevent England from winning and getting their land.
That is a metaphor for the Revolutionary War, but just in a shorter time.
