Using Virginia's SOL Standards on the Thirteen Colonies, this lesson teaches students about the 7 main colonial lifestyles:
--Free African Americans
--Enslaved African Americans
Students complete the following activities:
1. Cloze Notes - filling in information about the 7 lifestyles, including their colonial regions
2. Cartoon Activity Worksheet - Students read quotes and match them with the colonial lifestyle described. Students also sketch backgrounds for each cartoon that match their lifestyle.
3. Slap It! Game - Fun, quick formative assessment in which students "slap" the correct answer (students of ALL ages love this game)
4. Homework - Students describe each lifestyle, as well as describe the differences between colonial and today's lifestyles.
INCLUDED: Detailed lesson plan, notes + key, cartoon worksheet, slap-it slip template, and homework assignment.
