This unit includes 11 lessons highlighting the beginning of English colonization in North America, through the growth of the three colonial regions. This is a great unit to partner with the study of the events leading to, and the American Revolution.
The lessons begin with the motivation for English colonization in America and discuss the construction of the New England, Middle and Southern Colonial Regions. The concepts of Triangular Trade and the beginning of slavery in America are also discussed.
Included is a week long compare and contrast essay unit that focuses on comparing and contrasting the three colonial regions., Not only will students recap the daily lessons from the unit in this assignment, they will also receive invaluable instruction on how to properly form a compare and contrast essay.
Please consider following me. I will be adding units throughout the school year in Social Studies. Also contact me if you need lessons in any other subject area, I'm sure I have something that can help.
