These are the sheets I give my students to record notes from either group exploration or class discussions during our Colonial America unit. They record key information for the New England, Middle, and Southern Colonies (reason for settlement, resources, industries, etc.) as well as information on the types of people who lived in the colonies (indentured servant, slaves, artisans, etc.). They find this to be very helpful as it limits what they can write (good note taking) and helps them chunk their information into manageable sections.
**I have updated this to include an answer key to show what I require in each box. It will help guide your teaching. I hope it is helpful!
I hope you find this useful for you and your students!
