This digital resource is a web-based research activity that students can use in Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive. Students will research the 13 Colonies and show what they've learned by adding information and pictures to the slides. Slides for the three regions as well as the individual colonies are included (I included both "Middle Colonies" and "Mid-Atlantic Colonies" based on your preference).
Use this digital activity as an engaging independent project or a collaborative class activity during a Colonial America unit. Since students will use research, reading, and writing skills, you can easily incorporate this activity into your Language Arts block! No prep for you; no lost papers for them!
The slide contents include:
- teacher slides to which you can add directions, a rubric, and links to reference sources
- note-taking slides
- Venn diagram slides that students can use to compare two colonies/regions or compare a colony with the state today
- an editable Table of Contents with hyperlinked slides
- slides for the regions/colonies (including maps they can label)
Students can use the built-in Google research tool or use materials supplied by you. Three versions of printable note-taking pages are included that you can copy for student use.
**You’ll need an internet connection, a laptop or tablet, and a Google or Microsoft OneDrive account. Note: if you’re using a tablet, you may need to open Google Slides in the app, rather than the browser.**
When you purchase this resource, you will be given access to a link that will allow you to open the file in Google Slides. You’ll then share that file with your students. 32 slides are included, which can also be printed for students who prefer to complete the pages by hand.
This resource includes a step-by-step tutorial explaining how to share the resource with your students (both for Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive).
Please look at the preview to see more detailed information about this resource.
