Fifth-graders at a California elementary school recently participated in Boston Tea Party-themed protests against "taxation without representation" during their study of the Revolutionary War. The hands-on experience follows a curriculum revamp by three fifth-grade teachers. The students acted as township citizens rallying against being taxed for such things as failing to dress in school spirit wear and using computers. The Acorn (Agoura Hills, Calif.) (02/04)
