When you purchase this product you will find a handy organizational chart that is great to help your students keep facts about the colonies organized. Many times I will assign a pair of students to each colony and have them research it and fill in the information. After each group is complete then they will present what they found and the other students will record the information in their charts. This is also a great study guide. Your students will fill in the following information: Colony Name, Date when Colony was founded, Who was the colony founded by?, How did the people make a living in this colony?, What region was the colony in?
