Product Description
Incorporating IMAGES helps ✨ support & engage ✨ our ELLs and visual learners, and this word wall for colonies is a simple (& no color ink required) way to do that! These cards use ▚ QR codes ▞ to link to labeled photos illustrating facts about the New England, Middle, and Southern Colonies, and they also include a description or key fact about each group of colonies.

Students love taking control of their learning and referring to the word wall to refresh their memory about the 3 groups of colonies. By scanning the QR codes with any FREE scanner app, they are linked to the supporting images illustrating the New England, Middle, & Southern Colonies.

Colonial Concepts Included:
1) New England Colonies: Shipbuilding, fishing, lack of religious freedom, cold climate, rocky soil
2) Middle Colonies: Breadbasket, small farms, grain producers, livestock, Boston Harbor
3) Southern Colonies: Plantations, cash crops, indigo, cotton, tobacco, slavery, indentured servants

✍These 10 interactive Comparing Colonies word wall cards easily integrate technology into your Social Studies lessons and help students retain their new learning by giving them colorful visuals of each colony group WITHOUT having to use any color ink.
