Looking for a student-centered, creative method of teaching about the diversity among the early American colonies?
Have students create an infomercial convincing people to move to a particular colony! Students will use provided information to create an engaging infomercial on their colony that they'll present to their classmates. This is a great group activity that allows students to learn about many colonies in a short time span.
Students summarize information about the colonies and then creatively persuade their classmates to move to that location!
This activity includes:
-Directions for students and requirements for the infomercials
-Readings on some of the early American colonies
-Rubric for infomercials
