This is a creative project for students that I use during the American Colonial time period. I use it for lower-level students in high school, but could be used for all. It has 7 parts to it, but it should not take too long if they have a couple days after school to complete it.
This creative project is suppose to simulate:
1. A sense of the unknown when settlers first came to a new world.
2. How difficult it was to turn a location into a successful and thriving colony. (housing, laws/rules, advertising to others, etc.)
