First Colonists Arrive, 13 Colonies, Jamestown Established, Trade with Powhatan Indians, Fights with Indians, Growing Cash Crops, The Mayflower Arrives, Slavery in the South, Differences between Northern and Southern Colonies.
This project is a project that I use to teach an overview of the Thirteen Colonies. There are 8 events that students research information on. When they are finished I have them write an overall summary of the Thirteen Colonies. This is a very STUDENT-CENTERED activity. There is a rubric included for easy grading. You can scale the score to fit points for your class. The directions are simple, and provide for a lot of student CREATIVITY!
The eight events that students investigate are:
First Colonists Arrive
Trade with Powhatan Indians
Fights with Indians
Growing Cash Crops
The Mayflower Arrives
Slavery in the South
...and the Differences between Northern and Southern Colonies.
Enjoy this lesson! This activity is great for VISUAL AND VERBAL LEARNERS!
