So, one of the famous people from Rhode Island is Nathaniel Greene, Revolutionary war hero and general. My library had NOTHING on him. Or nothing that is age appropriate, so I made something up.
I took no pictures of us working on this because I was busy reading, and it would just be pictures of heads looking down. But, I have a nifty printable, and a short Lego battle totally unrelated to him to share with you:
Nathaniel Greene Rhode Island
The Battle of Fort Ticonderoga as enacted by Legos!
The British soldiers thought they were safe in their fort, so they all went to sleep in their beds. Or bent over like they are bowing because that amused my boys.
The American soldiers attacked and took the fort with no shots fired.
Then came a scene of general carnage and destruction so horrible no pictures could be taken. Or if you followed the real history they looted the cannons and took them down to Boston through an amazing feat of engineering.
Oh, I forgot to say. I’m linking this up to All Things Beautiful and their geography/history linkie.
