I love getting my students involved in their learning. I created this play to help teach life in the New England colonies.
This is a great enhancement to any lesson about the New England colonies. Included in the play are references to:
-soil conditions in New England (rocky soil)
-slavery in New England
-Growth of Trade - timber and fishing/whaling industries especially
-Town life - schools, green/commons, some trades
-The Navigation Acts
-New England colonies identified
The play will take about 15-20 minutes. I also include time right after to debrief what the students learn or what has been reinforced in the play. Have fun!
Please tell me what you think. Also, check out the play for the Life in the Middle Colonies, also available at my TPT store.
