Worksheets for a history lesson on the Southern Colonies. Includes a short piece of verse, a fact sheet, a 10 question short-answer worksheet, and a puzzle.
My worksheets make good homework assignments or handout work. I found them effective at the start of class. Have students read the poem aloud. They enjoy the rhyming and the digestible amount of text. Plus, having materials right in their hands at the beginning of class captures their focus (sometimes).
