For Crown or Colony?


As part of your in-class activity today, you will be playing an online game called "For Crown or Colony?"  You are playing the role of a Printer's Apprentice in the city of Boston around the year 1770.  The choices you make throughout the game will determine whether or not you end up a LOYALIST (one who wants the colonies to stay a part of England) or a PATRIOT (one who wants to leave England and create a whole new country).  Take your time, plug your headphones in, and enjoy playing the game over the next two days.  With about 10-15 minutes of class left, your EXIT SLIP will appear in Google Classroom.  It will be about what you learned while playing the game today.

And no, because I know that someone will ask, you are not allowed to play any of the other games on the Mission-US site just yet.  We will in the future, though.
