Product Description

In this project-based learning activity, students don't just describe the differences between the three colonial regions - they create a product using their new learning. They examine life in either the New England, Middle, or Southern colonies by creating a newspaper that could have existed in that region.

They research four key areas of life in their assigned region:

- Geography and Climate

- Economy

- Government

- Culture

They use their understanding of those topics to create articles, letters to the editor, political cartoons, obituaries, weather reports, Dear Abby letters, comics, advertisements, classifieds, and many other parts of a newspaper.

Included with this product:

- Teacher guide

- Newspaper project directions with brief explanation of each requirement

- Research websites and questions for the regions

- Planning sheet for students to use to help them make sure they meet each requirement

- Templates for newspaper pieces

- Newspaper rubric

- Notes sheet for sharing with the other regions
