Are you introducing the 13 colonies to your students? Use this project to help students better understand the reasons for settlement of the English colonies.
Place students into pairs, or small groups, and assign one of the thirteen colonies. Students will then research their colony, and complete the graphic organizer. When they are finished, they will then create a flag to represent their colony. They must choose two colors, and a symbol to represent their colony, as well as describe the meaning behind their flag. Students will then create a poster with information from their graphic organizer, and display their colony's flag on their poster. Students can present their poster to the class, or have students complete a gallery walk.
