This is the morning work I created for my class to complete throughout our Colonial America unit. In the beginning, they will utilize their resources to research the answers. As we progress through the unit, students could complete this on their own as a review. This could be used as a preteaching, homework, morning work, centers...the possibilities are endless! This could also be utilized if you are short on time and need a product to guide your teaching and serve as a “workbook” and/or notes for students to study.
