Students work in cooperative groups to create a 14th colony. They rely on the learning they have completed to choose a location, laws for land ownership, create a charter, and present their decisions to the class. They also decide on a name, economic products, and housing based on their location as a group. This is fun, culminating assessment for all. They present to the "Madame" or "Governor" of the class (the teacher) who will only choose one! The rest will be sent back to England!
