These self-checking task cards for the New England, Middle, and Southern Colonies use ▚ QR codes ▞ to link to labeled PHOTOS showing the correct answers! The visuals take self-checking QR codes to a whole new level of engagement and support ELLs and visual learners. Plus, there are 3 levels of differentiated answer documents included
. My energetic students love when I tape these task cards around the room to let them MOVE while comparing colonies. This activity is based on 4th grade Social Studies standards.
