Students will have fun exploring the Thirteen American Colonies as they show their researched knowledge through a mural that portrays the culture, economy and the geography of their chosen section of the colonies. Students learn from each other as they unveil and present their artwork to the class and parents. See a sample murals created and presented by my own class of the Middle Atlantic Colonies.
In this integrated unit, students will develop skills in areas such as oral language, art, reading, problem solving and social skills.
Class Time: approximately 2 weeks, 1 hr. per day (integrated into language arts and social science curriculum)
