Product Description
Does your curriculum include a study of Colonial America?

This Excel double-bar graph project, comparing population growth in the New England, Middle, and Southern colonies, can be a perfect way to:

* integrate technology, history, and math

* extend and enrich a Social Studies unit of study

* introduce students to creating sheets and charts using Excel

Project file includes:
* teacher notes/ classroom management suggestions
* student directions in checklist form
* rubric to grade finished graphs
* sample bulletin board display poster

* I’ve used this project as a Math center activity to enrich and extend the learning for a Social Studies unit

* I separated my students into 3 groups to create double-bar graphs in Excel comparing estimated population in 1700 and 1780 for the New England colonies, Middle colonies, and Southern colonies

* the choices individual students made for inserting patterns into the bars of their graphs made each graph personal and unique

* my students were able to complete this project with two or three 15-minute small group center sessions

* My 5th graders completed this project as a performance task- small groups of students working independently on Chromebooks or desktop computers in rotating 15-minute turns during my 90-minute Math block, working at their own pace through the project checklist directions

* this project may be used with younger students, or students needing adaptations, in small groups as well- reading the project checklist directions aloud to those small groups for a 10 or 15-minute rotating center turn
