I highly recommend getting my Colonies Interactive Notebook Activities to use with these lesson PowerPoints. No time for interactive notebook activities? No problem! My Social Studies Interactive Notebooks include Quick Notes (students simply write in notes) as well as pre-filled Quick Notes and digital quick notes templates for Google Classroom.
This is one component included in my Colonies Unit Bundle.
These resources are also available to teach Colonies:
Colonies Interactive Notebook
Colonies Vocabulary Posters, Flash Cards, and Word Wall Cards
Colonies Tests and Study Guides
This unit was designed for grades 4-6.
All of my American History materials are part of a huge American History Curriculum Mega-Bundle. You can find that by clicking here.
