The initial settlement of the 13 colonies, the wars caused by colonialism (The French and Indian War and wars with the Native Americans), the importation of slaves for plantation labor, and many more topics are explored in this bundle of assignments. Students will use the History.com website, U.S. history educational websites, online encyclopedias, and YouTube to answer questions in these webquests. History.com provides students with access to documentary videos, audio recordings, historical sources, historic pictures/videos, and in depth articles detailing the subject matter.
