To study the Colonial Period through a variety of assignments and reference sources.
2-3 class periods
Each student will read through a list of assignments (provided on the lesson pages) on the Colonial Period that they might enjoy doing. Some of the 25 assignments will earn the student 10 points, some are worth 15 points, and the others will earn the student 20 points each.
Class members must choose to do at least one assignment in each point category. Each student has to do enough assignments so that their points will add up to at least 100.
My students like this lesson because they get to do what interests them the most.
Teacher Instructions are included.
