This video was great! It shows the causes of the American Revolution in a way my students could relate! My students and I were very pleased with this video, I know they definitely understood the term "taxation without representation", thank you!

My students absolutely LOVED this video. We had been studying the American Revolution and at first I wasn't sure how they'd respond to the cat/dog replacement of the real people in history. They totally enjoyed it. I think they may have actually paid better attention to the lesson learned through this video because of the animal characters. I shared it with my fellow teachers and will definitely use it again next year.

Whitaker Elementary School, Winston Salem, NC
I found this DVD extremely helpful in the introduction to the American Revolution, the Boston Tea Party, and Colonial America. It is perfect for elementary school age children. This DVD is housed in the Professional Collection of the school library for all teachers to use. Thank you very much for this wonderful opportunity to provide excellent teaching tools to our teaching staff.

My students loved the video. It was important that they had background knowledge of the topic first. This enabled them to understand who the different characters in the video were as well as the events that were happening.This did not diminish their. enjoyment, but only added to the discussion afterwards. They were a little disappointed that there was not another video for their social studies curriculum.

The class loved it and they really got the play on the names. They want to see it again and on a rainy recess, I might just show it. It is a great way to teach them some of the ideas of history. thanks
