This project has three different differentiated levels for different levels of students, or to have them work up to... This project is set-up to print on 8.5x11 sheets of paper. In the first tier (the easiest), the students are given a map of the thirteen colonies and have to label each colony and then color the Northern/North Eastern Colonies, the Middle Colonies and the Southern Colonies different colors in a map key they create. In the second tier (medium difficulty), the students have to label the colonies, color the regions and also have to label major settlements (Boston, Plymouth, Portsmouth, New York City, Providence, Hartford, New Haven, Jersey City, Wilmington, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Jamestown, Roanoke, Cape Fear, Charles Town, and Savannah) that existed. In the third tier (the most difficult), the students have to label the colonies, color the regions, label the settlements, and then also identify the major occupations/economy of each colony (shipping, shipbuilding, fishing, lumbering, farming, livestock, and fur trapping), they also had to label the Appalachian Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. I use this for my subseparate special education classroom, but it could be used for an inclusion or typical classroom as well!
