Product Description
If your kids are anything like mine, they love writing from other perspectives. This project asks students to do just that...to write from the perspective of a Colonial Tradesman or Woman.

Students are told that they have been living in the English Colonies for some time as a tradesman/woman. They have struggled a bit living here, but have enjoyed building up their community. Now, there is a new family in town and they are helping this family adjust to their new home.

Students are asked to research and fill in multiple graphic organizers and note-catchers to help them eventually write a historically accurate depiction of what it was like to live in Colonial times and to help others just making the trip to their new home.

One of the major points of this project is to help students develop characterization in their writing. Students are asked to write about the background of their characters, including many character emotions and traits.

This is a project we have done for a while, but this year the NYS Modules have introduced a project very similar to the one I have used. I decided that I would put everything together in a packet for our 4th grade students. This packet is an easy way to have everything students need for this project all in one place. There is a "fill in the blank" rubric included, where your students write notes in the rubric where they believe they succeeded and where they think there is room for improvement.

Thanks for looking!
