Jordan’s Post on the Tea Tax

For the past few weeks the fifth grade has been learning about taxes in colonial America.  Right now we are learning about the Boston Tea Party, how the tea tax was put on the colonists and some who called themselves Patriots went again King George and led to the American revolution.  Some were with King George and thought the tea tax was not much to pay.  This led to the Boston Tea Party in 1773.  People from both sides came together and had a debate at the Old South Meeting House on if the tea tax should stay or get repealed.  We are going to go to the Old South Meeting House to re-enact the tea tax debate.  I have been very intrigued by this topic and am very exited for this field trip.
