Project: Students will research one of the thirteen colonies and create a pamphlet/brochure to encourage settlers to come to their particular colony to settle.
Requirements are provided and a grading rubric is attached.
Includes follow-up writing assignment idea.
Project was designed for Georgia students but "Georgia" can be swapped out in the intro paragraph to fit your needs (see below for intro paragraph)
"We have been spent a great deal of time talking about Georgia, its geography, and its founding, and early development. However, as we all know Georgia was just one of thirteen British colonies here in America. Each of the thirteen colonies was unique not only in the reasons that it was created, but in the differences in climate, culture, religion, and economics. It is these regional differences, as well as individual characteristics about each colony that help us to understand historical decisions leading up to, during, and even after the American Revolution."
