PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

2-4 day Lesson Plan and activities
Several day mini project meant to do in groups

This mini project is meant to enrich and grow knowledge of the 
colonists, government, and lifestyle of early American settlers. It is meant to 
be done as a small group, but can also be used individually

Students read several "problems" in the new colony they are a part of. They are required to solve this problem through the use of a proposal to the town hall for a meeting. Students work collaboratively to critically think, problem solve, practice their writing skills as well as their speaking and listening skills.

Differentiation: Students are able to create posters, write a proposal, and present their findings. It allows room for variation in the types of products created by students.

Includes:
2-4 day extensive lesson plan (time taken depends upon which activities from the mini project you choose to use)
"Roles" for students in each group
