This is what I call my "Big Sheet" activity. Included:
* a page of terms/phrases to cut out that relate to the colonial regions with two pages (one for the 11x17 and one for the 8.5x11)
* a ledger (11x17) AND 8.5x11 sized page to print with colonial regions for students to glue on
* a ledger (11x17) AND 8.5x11 sized page to print with summary questions
Students cut out terms about the original thirteen colonies' regions. Then, they group them where they belong on the "big sheet." Sometimes there are more than one of the same phrase/term which means it should be found in two/three colonial regions. I normally would check these before students glued them down, but you could use it as an assessment as well.
Once students had cut and glued down the appropriate terms, I had students complete the back as a summary. This went well with my other Thirteen Colonies Chart in my store (free download!)
You can remove the maps if you wish. I used the maps to reinforce a visual representation of the colonies. I had them simply color in that particular region on both the front and the back as a reminder. But that's up to you!
I used the Virginia standards to come up with these terms as well as other activities we do in my school.
Let me know what you think!
