In this simulation, students will discover the challenges and triumphs faced by colonists who established colonies in the New World in the 17th and 18th century. The simulation involves group work, discussion and compromise, creativity, and critical thinking. Students will also learn about the actual history of the colonial settlement period and understand the various reasons that colonies were established. The simulation employs many aspects of the Common Core and DOK critical thinking. Students demonstrate their mastery of the content by a culminating project that utilizes both scaffolding and student choice.
