2) Even though the baseline presentation can be done in Google Slides...if your group does a "whiteboard" video or other animated presentation your group will be Ms. Bohlin's favorites! Check out www.goanimate.com or www.powtoon.com for a couple a great options.

•What was so unfair about how the class was taxed?
• Why were tax collectors tarred and feathered?

6) Patrick Henry, during his GML speech, coins the rally cry and true REASON of Colonists' acts leading to Revolution! What is it????
APUSH >>> Today, your group of 3-5 will be constructing your E-Timelines. Remember to use a format all members of your group can access -i.e. if you decide to use instagram every member needs the username and password OR if you are using TimeToast then you would share log-in info OR if you use Prezi then simply share and all members can be in the prezi at the same time.
