Memorizing the Thirteen Colonies can be a daunting task for many students. This PowerPoint uses a creative way to teach a memorable story that students will surely remember. Combining Rover (yes, the dog's name) and a boy named Pilgrim, students are taken on a journey in which Pilgrim is constantly working hard to keep his demanding sisters satisfied.
By the end, your students will too be yelling about Rover!
*I used this for the first time in November 2015 and ALL 25 of my third grade students earned a 100% on their Thirteen Colonies assessment! My 5th grade daughter used it to memorize them as well, and has retold the story many times, each time making it funnier and more memorable.
