I use this project as a short/introductory research project in my classes. It is a great way to practice research skills while learning about life in the 13 colonies. The creative part of the project allows students to take ownership of their research by creating a physical product and for strengthening "instruction following" skills. The research portion of this project is great for preparing students for more vigorous research projects they will participate in during my class.
This product includes:
-research guide and instruction sheets
-lesson schedule/tips for teachers
