These are task cards I created to use to check for mastery with our Colonial America unit. These are designed with 4th grade in mind, but they could be used in other grades are remediation, pre-teaching, or extension. Each is open ended to ensure they are not just guessing the answer and not really taking the time to think about and apply what they know.
~Southern, Middle, and New England Colonies
~Reasons for settlement
~Geography of each and how that impacted them
~Economies/Industries of each
~People from that time: artisans, slaves, indentured servants, women, men, apprentice, Native Americans
~Relationship with the Native Americans
~Identifying the colonies and the group they belong to
These could be used as individual practice, an assessment, a group activity, homework, or for an early finisher.
I hope your class gets great use out of these task cards!
