Product Description
Are you tired of lectures? How about passive students who aren't interested or participating? If so, you should try this engaging two-day lesson.

Day 1 consists of a teacher guided model on the New England Colonies. The teacher model comes with a script and directions for students. As the teacher reads each section (8 in total) a small group of students will pose for the class. There is a sheet that clearly explains the expected poses.

Students watch this model and are expected to re-create it to describe the Southern and Middle Colonies. On Day 1, after the initial model students will have to complete research, write a narrated script, and design poses to enhance their understanding of the different colonial regions. This continues on Day 2, but on that day, they are expected to present. This is a great opportunity for students to display their knowledge creatively. Typically, after each group presentation, I have the audience ask questions to the actors. Having students justify their poses ensures they truly understand the content.

This is great for a teacher who is ready to cede control to their students. It is a challenging activity, and the teacher needs to have good classroom management. However, if these two features are met, students' products are typically on-target, creative, and helpful.

This packet comes with general directions, the teacher script, student posing directions, a script sheet for students, a notes sheet, and a rubric.

I use this product for South Carolina History Indicator 8-1.3, but it works for any standard that teaches about the 13 colonies.
