Integrate reading, writing, and American history with a constructed response worksheet about Paul Revere and the American Revolution.
Who was Paul Revere? Let’s Find Out!
Paul Revere was a true American hero during the Revolutionary War. He worked as a silversmith in Boston. As a member of the Sons of Liberty, he participated in the Boston Tea Party and was a top rider for Boston’s Committee of Safety. In that role, he devised a system of lanterns to warn the minutemen of a British invasion, setting up his famous ride on April 18, 1775. Without his skill and bravery, it is quite possible that the outcome of the American Revolution would have been quite different.
