This set is full of opportunities for your 4th, 5th, or 6th grade students to dive into research about the original colonies that made up the United States and/or Canada. My students spent 3 days researching, answering the questions, preparing a presentation, practicing, and one day as a whole class presenting. This project is easily done in partners, groups of 3-5, or even individually.
The worksheet consists of 10 questions asking basics such as where and when to questions asking about interactions with Native Americans and formation of government.
There is also space for 4 sources, if you require your students to list where they got their information.
Also included is a 6 x 3 grading rubric with specifications about what each grade option entails. Students can use textbooks, informational books, and websites.
