This is an introduction to the New England, Middle, and Southern colonies. Students will complete a graphic organizer as they view slides that discuss the reasons why people chose to settle in a particular region and what drove their region's economy.
As part of the organizer, students shade in a map of the New England, Middle, and Southern colonies.
At the end of the organizer, students respond to a thinking question: "If you were to immigrate to America in the early 17th century, in which region would you like to live?" They are asked to explain with a minimum of 25 words. This can lead into a fun classroom discussion!
