Let your students choose the activities that interest them. Students need to choose from 41 different projects. The projects are set up in a menu format in four categories. These categories include activities that require a "performance" in front of the class, activities that display researched information, activities that are writing based, activities that require students to make something, and finally activities that are movement/game based.
Rubrics are included for each activity and a student contract is also included.
This project was meant to be used after the unit on Colonial America has been taught.
There are 33 pages in the assembled project book.

I love the Colonial America Activity Choices. The students were so excited when we began the Colonial America Unit because they were going to do more things besides pencil paper worksheets (which I hate!!). They get to have choices which is awesome!!

This is a great unit study for Colonization. Just what I was looking for and I'm going to be able to cover many CCSS.

I love this unit! I was looking for a hands-on project approach to excite my students about history. This will be a wonderful addition to my Colonial America lessons.
