Studying the colonies? Here is a great tool for your students! I use it as an assessment after we have studied the colonies. Each student is assigned a colony and they fill out the poster using the notes and information they have recorded during the unit. I usually give them an 8 1/2 x 11 copy for a rough draft, and enlarge it to 11 x 17 for the final draft.
You could also create a book that includes this page filled out for each colony. It could also be used for taking notes during a study of the colonies. I have used it both as an independent assignment and a collaborative project.
