Project Based Learning: Life in the 13 Colonies is a highly engaging and dynamic activity that teaches students about the past, while instilling skills they will utilize in the future.
Students research life in the 13 colonies, focusing on geography and climate, and will then take on the role of a colonist by selecting a colonial name (use the colonial name cards) and colonial job. Using the Colonial Jobs Research Questions worksheet and the suggested websites, students will research their chosen role. Students will then complete the resume template.
