Product Description
In this lesson students get to become a scouting party for the Pilgrims, they have just sighted land on the coast of Massachusetts, where should they live and why? Students are intrigued by being part of a scouting party and working to ensure their group's survival. This is the second lesson in a unit on the New England colonies, students have previously gone over why the pilgrims came to America and the conditions that they were met with when they reached America. This lesson asks students to think about what a person needs to survive and then using the geography of the region where the pilgrims came upon land, select a place to live. Students will use a list of things people need to survive along with their maps to justify where the chose to settle in present day Massachusetts, filling in an outline and turning it in to a short argumentative essay. Some groups will present their argument to the class and then the class will choose where to settle and why. Students will talk about the merits of where the pilgrims actually chose to settle and the area they live in now.
