One very important part of our nation's history is the development of the 13 colonies. For this PowerPoint, I created an informative and visually interesting summary of what the 13 colonies were about. As you present this lesson, you'll notice that the text is highlighted in various colors. This is an ELL strategy so that a variety of students can take turns reading the text. This is an effective way of conducting student engagement. As with my other PowerPoint's, I have the students take notes while we go over the material. One thing to note is that this PowerPoint has a focus on the middle colonies.
