Colonial times meet the digital age with this engaging web-based research activity that students can use in Google Drive™ or Microsoft OneDrive™. Students will research various colonial trades and occupations and show what they've learned by adding information and pictures to the slides. This makes a great independent project or a collaborative class activity during a Colonial America unit. No prep for you; no lost papers for them!
The slide contents include:
• an editable Table of Contents with hyperlinked slides
• 12 slides with various colonial trades/occupations (basketmaker, blacksmith, brickmaker, cabinetmaker, cooper, farmer, printer, shoemaker, silversmith, tailor, town crier, and wigmaker)
• a blank Venn diagram that students can use to compare two trades or compare one with a similar job today
• an extra slide in case you want students to research a trade that’s not included
A printable note-taking page is also included that you can copy for student use.
This resource includes a step-by-step tutorial explaining how to share the slides with your students (both for Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive).
**Please note that you’ll need an internet connection, a laptop or tablet, and a Google or Microsoft OneDrive account.*
