I LOVE what my students create with this project! With the advancement of digital cameras and cell phones, the results of this project just get better and better! I also love that it is a "group project" and yet each student is easily graded on just their part of the project. Each student is assigned one section of the 13 original colonies (New England Colonies, Middle Colonies, Southern Colonies). Includes directions for the picture taking and the paragraph writing as well as a scoring rubric. Great to display in the hallway, and with three students to a poster board, not as many posters to hang up.
