*UPDATE! An additional assignment page for students to use textual evidence from their research has been added.
I created this resource to go along with the unit on colonial life. First, we read If You Lived in Colonial Times by Ann Mcgovern and the students take notes about various aspects of life for the colonists. Then, students go online and explore for more information.
While reading the book and researching online, students can fill out the 4 page research packet. As a final assessment, students compare and contrast life in colonial times with life today. They have to make sure that they provide enough details and examples in each answer. Included in this resource is the rubric I use for grading.
