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:
