A great hands-on U.S. history project for kids.
Make your study of history fun and memorable with these articulated puppets of famous people of the American Revolution. With Famous Figures of the American Revolution, your children will make ten jointed paper dolls from the American Revolution. Includes Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and more!
Includes ten historical figures:
- Benjamin Franklin
- Betsy Ross
- Daniel Boone
- George Washington
- John Adams
- Molly Pitcher
- Patrick Henry
- Paul Revere
- Soldier of the Continental Army

First, cut them out and put them together. Then use your imagination to make them come to life. Each of these easy to assemble figures comes in two versions: pre-colored, or blank and ready to color. Printed on sturdy paper, when assembled, these figures move their arms and legs! Includes historical information.
Famous Figures of the American Revolution will inspire your child with story. Act out the real stories of history. Travel through time with your articulated puppets. It is a perfect activity for eager learners who continually want more hands-on activities. Stand in a thunderstorm with Ben Franklin as he conducts experiments with a kite. Write the Declaration of Independence with Thomas Jefferson. Sew the first American flag with Betsy Ross. Lead the Continental Army with George Washington. Learn while playing with paper dolls from Famous Figures of the American Revolution!
These jointed paper dolls of the American Revolution also motivate and engage reluctant students. Furthermore, your child will build fine motor skills as they cut out the pieces and put them together. Additionally, you can create puppets with string or craft sticks. Even more, try producing a stop-motion animation film using magnets on the back of the figures.
Famous Figures of the American Revolution is a great addition to your study of U.S. History. Provide hours of fun and educational play as the perfect complement to Sonlight levels D, E, D+E, or any history program you may be using.
