This graphic organizer is for a unit on colonial life. It also meets Common Core objectives for non-fiction literacy. Over the course of two or three class periods, the students research information about their chosen colonial trade. There are many books and online resources available about a wide variety of colonial trades. The organizer can be modified for many learners. I’ve found this to be a wonderful way to differentiate instruction as there are books available at a wide variety of reading levels. The information can be used for a research report, a brochure or another creative activity. Some classes dress up and have a colonial day celebration at the end of the unit. My kids always love it!
