PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Incorporate authentic learning into your classroom by having your students complete this project as you teach about life in Colonial America. The project is organized around the question: How can you as a real estate agent in Colonial America market and sell a house that will meet the needs of a person living in the colonies?

Students will analyze the life of people living in the different colonies and then design and market a house that will meet the needs of a specific colonial client. They will not only practice social studies content, but also reading and writing nonfiction skills, and research skills. Throughout the learning process, their project will help drive your instruction. There are also opportunities throughout for teaching social skills and 21st century skills through different types of sharing, giving and receiving feedback, and being flexible with plans.

This project can easily be differentiated for your classroom needs. It can be assigned as an enrichment project for early finishers/advanced learners or as a whole class project.
