What was Colonial America? Why and how were colonies created? What makes a colony successful? How are YOU connected?
Students have a great time seeking out the answers to these major historical questions! There are four layers of projects (including foundational knowledge, application of skills and self to world connections) for kids to move through at their own pace. This document allows you to insert due dates and sign-off on completed projects. I have included a blank template in which to ask for supplementary ideas from students, as a planning sheet for students, or as a comment space for layer-by-layer assessment.
Learning using layers allows every student to move at a pace that works for them, in a style of learning that is suitable for them, while also ensuring that they feel responsible for their learning. What more can you want for your students?
