The American Revolution Interactive Timeline App is a great find for front loading the students with information about the American Revolution. I decided that the best tool for recording the information from the timeline was going to be paper. Yes, paper. I didn't want students working back and forth between apps today because the timeline is so well designed and streamlined that I wanted the students to "stay in the war" so to speak.

We also allowed for a back channel of "Hey, I found this" on Twitter.
