Product Description
This product is included in the 13 Colonies Bundle

I use Mr. Zoller's YouTube videos with my flipped teaching worksheets to capture notes. After a discussion introducing the 13 colonies, I ask my students to sort these photos into the 3 major regions to reinforce their knowledge (New England, Middle and Southern colonies).

The same tiles can be used for a timeline activity to put major events in order. Then there are 4 different writing options to consolidate their learning.

Intended for grades 5-8, but could apply in high school also.

There are 36 tiles:
Each colony in a map format

Characteristics of the colonies:
Cash crop: cotton
Ship building
Wheat for export
Breadbasket of the colonies
Lumber for export
Plantation home
Early New Amsterdam
Cash crop: Tobacco
Slavery on the plantation
Hunting whale & fishing
Amish, Mennonite & other religious groups colonized
Iroquois trading fur with the colonists

Events:
