This is a four lesson unit by Reading Through History. In this download there are four separate lessons dealing with common occupations in colonial America. The lessons discuss farmers, artisans, merchants, craftsmen, and those who served in colonial governments. For each lesson there is a one page reading activity followed by reading comprehension questions, guided reading activities, vocabulary activities, student summaries, and a student response essay question. This download includes enough material to cover four separate 25-30 minute allotments of class.
*My students typically complete the work in about 25-30 minutes. This provides for 10 to 15 minutes of discussion/intro prior to the assignment.
